The Saif Ali Khan - Preity Zinta starrer Salaam Namaste is one of the major attractions at the annual Bollywood Masala Indian Film Festival for the second successive year in Brisbane, the capital of the Queensland state.

While 'Salaam Namaste' is likely to attract largest chunk of Queenslanders. Others films being shown at the Brisbane festival include Parineeta , Swades , Bunty Aur Babli and Veer Zaara .




By organising the annual Bollywood Masala Indian Film Festival for the second successive year in Brisbane, the capital of the Queensland state is showing symptoms of becoming the latest Australian city to catch Bollywood fever.

The Brisbane event is screening four of Festival patron Yash Chopra's movies.

"Indian films have come a long way with their technical advances, while retaining the core of Indian values and emotions which are the basic diet for viewers of Indian films," Indian film patriarch told the Courier Mail newspaper.

"What is gratifying is that while some of these films are different and made for mature audiences, they are all ingrained with human values and emotions. This is what makes the world go around," Yash Chopra added.

The Bollywood film festival in Brisbane is now considered an integral and important part of the local cinema calendar as it is being organised for the second year in running.

The timing of the aptly named Masala Film Festival has coincided with the screening of the Hrithik Roshan starrer Krrish in a number of Queensland cinemas.

Seven Indian films are to be shown in the festival being organised by Mitu Lange of MG Distribution.

The Melbourne-based company has made name in the recent years for organising making of a number of Indian television serials, films and advertisements in Australia.

The Southern, and larger, counterparts of Brisbane - Melbourne and Sydney are already considered serious contenders for the unofficial title of overseas capital of spicy Indian movies.

While Melbourne, which hosted the making of 'Salaam Namaste', is the venue of an international photographic exhibition on Indian movies; Sydney would soon witness the making of the largest Indian film outside India.
