Nothing succeeds like excess in the Indian film industry. In Bombay, Hollywood of the East, a new, noisy, colourful feature film is churned out every three days. Heroic heroes battle furiously with villainous villains - everything is larger than life, including Rajesh Khanna , Bombay's superstar. Jack Pizzey and a Man Alive film team watched Rajesh dancing through love scenes beneath the Himalayan snows, plotting his way through the intrigues of the Bombay film world, and at home with his 15-year-old wife: when he married in March millions of Indian girls were heart-broken.
