Israelis and Palestinians, who differ on almost every issue, have a common love - Bollywood mega superstar Amitabh Bachchan , who rules over their hearts.

The popularity that Bachchan enjoys in Jerusalem will be envied even by Hollywood stars. Walking through the streets of Jerusalem, one can hear songs from Bollywood movies, especially those starring the Big B.




DVDs of Hindi movies are available in most video shops in Jerusalem, with films starring Bachchan a big hit among locals. A single DVD costs 50 Shekel (Rs 500).

The challenge Bachchan faces here is only from Gabbar Singh -- the character played by late Amjad Khan in the cult classic Sholay - who is equally popular among people of all ages, from teenagers to the elderly.

"I like watching the movies of Amit (Bachchan) and Amjad, I love their action movies," said 22-year-old Yassar, who runs a small shop near the church of Sepalca, where, according to Catholic beliefs, Jesus Christ was crucified.

"My friends and I watch their movies at least once a week," he said.

" Lawaaris , 'Kalia', Deewar , 'Parvarish', Zanjeer , 'Sahenshah', 'Sholay', Black - we have watched all these movies," he said and started singing, along with one of his friends, the song "Janu meri jaan, mein tere qurban, main tera tu meri jane sara Hindustan" from the movie "Shaan".
