Bollywood Cinemas: A Cinematic Escape
Upon arrival in Dubai, you will quickly note the sizable population of Indian expats residing in the city, continuing the historical connections linking the UAE and India. This connection is also reflected in the arts, as many Emiratis avidly watch Bollywood films and several Bollywood stars, such as Aishwariya Rai and Shahrukh Khan, own homes in Dubai and are often spotted in the city. Bollywood Cinemas in Al Quoz is a theater dedicated to Bollywood films and is the only theater that screens films of various Hindi dialects. Mainly frequented by workers, who reside in the housing nearby, Bollywood Cinemas offers an escape to many and a window to the workers’ homes.
