Firangs take on Bollywood music. And how.

MUMBAI: At a time when the whole country is being urged to walk in English, talk in English and rock in English, there are few firangs who are doing the exact opposite.

The Bollywood music craze has always held foreigners in thrall. This craze sometimes manifests in love of a different kind - when the foreigners pull out their ghagras and put on their best Hindi accents and pour their hearts out for the world to see and admire.
