Like a fragrant, rich over-ripe Alphonso mango, the union of Anu and Neeral has all the ‘rasa’ – the juice of the culture of the Indian sub-continent, the exuberance of a big fat Indian wedding. It’s a joyous story of parents, siblings, extended families and friends all coming together for a delirious celebration, the union of a same sex couple in the open and with the beating of noisy, happy drums.

Bazodee - love, Bollywood style.
Will Trinidad become the next hot Bollywood location?
"The Trini dollar buys incredible amounts of production value, which I believe is extremely enticing for a production company that is open-minded. In addition, Trinidad is so much fun and so incredibly beautiful, but has all the amenities of a first-world country. Production in Trinidad should be seriously considered.."
