For about a decade now, a lot of Westerners have enjoyed watching Bollywood movies because it's such a different style from typical Hollywood. Now, there is even advice on how to become an extra in a Bollywood movie because so many Americans want to know. I'm not sure how hard or far-fetched the idea is, but I recently read an article on the Orbitz Travel website called "How to be a Film Extra in Bollywood." The article summarizes that if you spend time in the right places in Mumbai, you could end up as an extra. If you don't want to research the entire article, I thought I'd summarize the main tips below: Locations that Orbitz advices you go: Colaba Causeway, Leopold Cafe, or Gateway of India. The advice column says to make sure you look cute and tell people that you want to be an extra in any movie. The locals can usually find you leads or let you know when scouts are in looking for Westerners. They also say you can go to Salvation Army Red Shield Hostel where Orbitz says there is often just a sign up sheet to be in the movies. Other tips: Orbitz advises that you always ask for ID, the name of the movie, and go with a group to avoid any scams. They also warn that this isn't a job - you won't really be paid for it and it's more to get the fun of being in a Bollywood movie, if only for one day. Has anyone done this? Would you be interested in doing it? How realistic do you think it is to be in a Bollywood movie?
