Poland-India talks about a movie
During their visit to India, Mariusz Łuszczewski, the President of the West Pomeranian Indian Chamber of Commerce, together with Michał Kwieciński, a film producer and director of the first Polish-Bollywood movie of ‘Taka Karma’ (The Karma), met in New Delhi Mr. Adam Burakowski, the Polish Ambassador to India. On 15th June this year, in Warsaw, President Łuszczewski and Michał Kwieciński met Mr. Tsewang Namgyal, the Ambassador of the Republic of India to Poland. Both meetings focused on a new movie entitled ‘The Karma’. The Polish-Bollywood production won the support of both ambassadors, since it is a unique initiative contributing to a cultural bridge between Poland and India, as well as bringing the two, so much different, cultures together. The movie is going to be based on the love between a Pole Andrzej Łuszczewski and Anita Agnihotri from India. The cast of The Karma will include Maja Ostaszewska and Robert Więckiewicz.
The movie will provide more information about Poland to the Indian audience to trigger their interest in our country. It is also an opportunity to support Polish-Indian cooperation by promoting both cultures.
The Indian movie industry is a phenomenal and fascinating sector, and Bollywood is one of the most rapidly developing movie making business in the world. Its global success and role for the Indian society are based on specific philosophy of the Indian civilisation.
Moreover, the movie, as a means of communication, has a tremendous influence on attracting sympathy and shaping public opinion in other countries. It contributes to international relations and the position of the country in the world. Due to its popularity, it influences live styles, and the possibility of reaching out to a large audience is invaluable. An attractive presentation of culture is the best way to win sympathy of the international audience, and there is hardly any better way of opening people’s hearts than with the magic hand of movies.
