Well the movie The Japanese Wife made directed by Aparna Sen in 2010 in the latest example I can find. Also Halord and Kumar (even though its hollywood) is another popular one. Jackie Chan's move The Myth, starring Mallika Sherawat is probably the best movie made of this so far.

Any more like this?

Harold and Kumar is a hollywood movie, not bollywood.

I remember watching a Bollywood movie that involved China but I forgot the name. The main character was some guy who worked at his father's restaurant and thought a potato looked like a god/deity. He followed some Indian model to China or something like that.

There is one but I don't remember the name. The thing is a real Bollywood film complete with singing, dancing and fight scenes.


The stars of the movie, one male and one female Japanese TV comedians, play the parts of a poor Chinese brother and sister pair( for some reason, they are in India ). The Chinese guys beautiful sister is taken away by an evil rich Indian guy. So the guy, teamed up with an Indian kung Fu fighter, begins a quest to find and rescue his sister.

In the end, the Indian Kung Fu guy falls in love with the Chinese girl and the Chinese guy falls in love with the little sister of Indian kung Fu guy. They kill the bad guy and live happily ever after.

Rajni-sempai (Japanese translation of Thalaivar as Tamils call him) is really popular among the Japanese audience. It is no wonder he wants to put Japanese people in his movies.

He is also the most paid actor in Asia!
