Going to the Movies: Irna Q.




Our first Going to the Movies of what we're calling the second season of Masala Zindabad (because we can!) features Irna Q of the excellent blog Bollywood in Britain. Seriously, head on over there and read something. You won't regret it.

Irna brings us a charming story about the importance of Pakeezah in her life and how she accidentally gifted her friend Jodie with a new career when she asked her to perform one of the songs at her wedding. 

Available on iTunes, through subscription to our feed, or download here.

This story and all others will be collected at the series page, which is also linked on the left of the main site. We'd love to hear yours, so send yours in! Submission requirements and instructions, as well as an overview of the project, are on the series page.

  1. Welcome to the blog, Irna! This is pretty much what Beth and I were hoping for when we started inviting people to contribute to this series.

  2. It's a pleasure to be able to share my memories of Pakeezah, and I hope the podcast will inspire others, who haven't already done so, to discover the film.

  3. Irna, I LOVED listening to your account! It was so heartfelt and engaging and I absolutely loved the part of the story about your friend who danced at your pre-wedding party and the effect it had on her life afterward. It was all so charming. Shabash!
