In how many Hindi films has the hero been afflicted with the Big C (cancer, that is)?

Who played a double role in Sholay? Which Dev Anand movie had the song Usne phenka leg break to maine mara chhakka ?

And who was it that said Hum jahan khade hote hain, line wahin se shuru hoti hai in Kaalia? Amitabh, you say? Think again!

From Geet Gaata Chal (songs that became movies), The Big Bong Theory (11 depictions of Bengalis) and Dawaa Ya Dua (8 kinds of diseases) to Nishabd (10 silent scenes of Amitabh Bachchan) and Picture Abhi Baaki Hai (16 unusual The End s), Bollybook is chock-full of interesting asides, fascinating insights and utterly useless trivia from the world of Hindi cinema. Every page in this bumper book the print equivalent of a 270- minute Bollywood epic is going to engross and entertain you.

A copy of Bollybook belongs on your table, right next to your DVD remote.
