Indian cinema has acquired another step in its history. Bollywood named Hindi Cinema is to be taught in Berkeley, Cardiff, Manchester and other universities. Harshikaa Udasi has stormed academic centres around the world. Indian cinema has reached the academic centres of the western world with a serious study of Indian films which are now being part of the course curriculum in many reputed universities.

Currently, Indian Cinema is being taught at the University of Manchester, University of California, Berkeley and Cardiff University. A year ago, a conference was held at Vienna University to recognise the contribution of popular Hindi cinema. However, it would be an understatement with a three-day international conference solely on ‘Shah Rukh Khan and Global Bollywood’.

However, most PhDs in South Asian cinema are reportedly being done on Hindi films. Jennifer lists professors who specialise in Bollywood cinema and teach related coursework. The names include those from from University of California, DePaul University, Florida State University, New York University, University of Southern California, Syracuse University and Yale University.

Indian movie ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ which has won the Best Picture in the 81st Academy Awards and has also won few more. Danny Boyle has been awarded as Best Director, Simon Beaufoy got the Best Adapted Screenplay, Anthony Dod Mantle for the Best Cinematography, A.R. Rehman for the Best Original Score. In addition, A.R. Rahman and Gulzar has won the best original song for ‘Jai Ho’, Chris Dickens for Best Film Editing and finally for the Best Sound Mixing to Resul Pookutty, Richard Pyke, and Ian Tapp.
