Bollywood actors in US's anti-terrorism drive

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/wiki...9-14-2007.html

So...perhaps Parveen Babi's delusions about CIA wanting to assassinate her or something to that effect were not totally baseless

What do you say?....all those superstars of late are decided by some overseas thinktank to promote their agenda?

Re: Bollywood actors in US's anti-terrorism drive

Copy/paste from Dhurus link
Quote:

Bollywood ---------
16. (SBU) On October 10, Pandith and Cohen met with a cross section of the South Asian community working in film to discuss the potential of working with the Indian film industry - "Bollywood" - on delivering an anti-terrorism message. Participants included Director of Arts Versa Mohsin Abbas, Channel 4 TV Head of Multicultural Programming Farouk Dhondi, Producer Director Mahmood Jamal, Locations Manager Amjad Khan, and singer/actress Humeira Akhter, who has strong links with top Bollywood actors/actresses. A lively discussion produced a number of possible ideas, including developing ways to promote existing anti-terrorist films, and to develop funds for similar productions. Once such an anti-extremist genre is established, participants believed that major Bollywood figures would be willing to speak out on the issue. Humaira Akhtar has already gotten back to Pandith on possible stars in Bollywood interested in such a project.
pasting here cause I glimsed at the article and all I could see was muslim this and muslim that. Sat morning and did not want to read about POP, so pasting the relevant point here.

southies use "h" after "t" to prevent t from running away....jokes apart...I think it might have to do with french influence...in french t is written in many words but not pronounced...for example, Merlot is spoken as Merlo

I am afraid that the French influence does not extend to Ms. Pandith.

It's a Muslim last name from J&K. I would guess at some time in the bygone past they were Brahmins (Pandits) and they converted to Islam and the name got corrupted to Pandith. Just like Bhat and its variation Butt.

Two links if you want more info on this:

Dhurandhar is actually durandar, he is simply putting the "hh" to prevent his "dd" from running away
