History Channel puts the spotlight on ‘Bollywood Bosses’

They are the creators of modern day celluloid dreams. While one might debate endlessly whether they matched up to the likes of Bimal Roy, Satyajit Ray or V Shantaram, they definitely are today’s ‘Bollywood Bosses’. History Channel is showcasing some of India’s leading film directors today as part of their 10-week series.

From May 2 to July 4, every Friday History Channel will turn the spotlight on Rakesh Roshan, Karan Johar, Yash Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Mahesh Bhatt, Subhash Ghai and Vidhu Vinod Chopra in its new series, ‘Bollywood Bosses’.

Rajesh Sheshadri, Senior Vice President, Content & Communications, History Channel, said, “‘Bollywood Bosses’ is a great example of the kind of entertaining programming that the History Channel offers its viewers. It provides an unprecedented access to not just the directors in profile, but virtually every top star and technician who counts in today’s Bollywood industry. The presentation of the programme brings these directors’ struggles and accomplishments to life, making history entertaining and more relevant for the viewers.”

This apart, History channel would also be organising an on-ground quiz contest in Delhi and Mumbai titled, ‘Bollywood Rap’, along with the TV programme. Participants can log on to www.historychannelindia.com to register for the contest. This contest would be promoted heavily on the channel and also through on-ground activities across various media.
