Join us for Bollywood at the Castro – one of the most popular events at the festival! This year’s interstellar offering takes Bollywood exuberance in a whole new direction apt for the 21st century! Superstar Aamir Khan shines as the titular PK, an inquisitive space alien who lands on Earth and shakes up society, in director Rajkumar Hirani’s (3 idiots) subversive comedy. Deftly poking fun at the foibles of earthlings – especially their warring religions, PK shines a light on the contradictions of social mores with humor and compassion. A runaway hit in India, the film features a wealth of top actors including Anushka Sharma as a plucky TV journalist, Saurabh Shukla as a wealthy Hindu mega-swami, and most memorably, Munnabhai MBBS star Sanjay Dutt as a ruffian wedding band musician.
