How the Jews Are Taking Over Bollywood
Okay, maybe just one Jew. And maybe that one Jew, who happens to be my goombah David Segal, co-founder, with yours truly, of the Jewish Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, whose name we changed to Jewsrock.org after the actual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame sued us, did not actually take over anything.

You could call Imran a freelance talent scout for the film industry of India, except--as our interview suggests--he's not looking for talent. He's looking for white people. Bollywood requires a few dozen Western extras every day, to add vérité to crowd scenes in ostensibly exotic locales. Imran's job is to find foreigners and chaperon them to Film City, an expansive badlands of rocks and shrubs at the northern edge of this megalopolis, where most of India's movies are made. I got his phone number through a reporter in Delhi, but usually he finds you, trolling local tourist sites.
