Margarita, With A Straw Released In India On Friday!

April 19, 2015

As a disabled British Asian who loves Bollywood movies, I have been very pleased and proud in recent years to see an increasing number of Bollywood movies focusing on disabilities and disability issues, and having disabled main characters. Paa, Taare Zameen Par and My Name Is Khan to name just a few.

So far, they have all been hits in India, and among South Asian communities in the rest of the world.

Now, the latest such Bollywood movie, Margarita With A Straw, released nationwide in India on Friday.

Margarita With A Straw is the story of a young woman with Cerebral Palsy who explores her personal identity in every sense of the word.

If you are in India, please go and see this movie. If you have connections in India, please suggest that they go and see it.

And if you live outside India and want to follow the movie’s progress, this is the best place to do so on Facebook.

    sounds like a wonderful film. I grew up in London in the late fifties with many Asian people who our family always regarded as trusted friends and to this day i still regards them as MY people and am pleased to say they love me as much as i love them.
