In this episode

Our second in the “In Dialogue” series! Our guest for this week is Beth Watkins, a museum professional and popular Bollywood blogger and film enthusiast.

Game of Thrones, Bollywood version?

Beth is a treasure trove of film trivia and Bollywood films, in general. She goes by @bethlovesbolly on Twitter. We talk to her about how she got into Bollywood, what one should watch if you want to start watching Bollywood films. And we also play our “Guess the inspiration” game with her.

But most importantly, we talk about her amazing Bollywood family trees — the Kapoors, the Mukherjees, and many others.

For starters, here is the Mukherjee family tree. Notice the links between several big Bollywood families and dynasties. Also, an intriguing Satyajit Ray connection.
