Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
The Indian film industry, which claims to be the largest producer of films in the world, is parodied in this movie. It is based on Shashi Tharoor's book Show Business. The film follows the many exploits of Ashok, a serious stage actor, who after deciding that money is more important than art, becomes a movie star. His first role is in the action movie "Godambo." To get good reviews, he cozies up to a nymphomanical gossip columnist. He also has many other affairs. His wife bears him triplets. He is part of a political scandal. This is but a sampling of the trouble Ashok gets into.
