OK, not quite, but we just found out that my sister Kely is in the major Indian film Kalloori by Balaji Sakthivel and director S. Shankar starring popular actors Akhil and Tamanna Bhatia. Kely’s even in the movie trailer!

This Bollywood, or technically Kollywood, movie has gotten rave reviews (although it has been fairly controversial), but we haven’t been able to find it here in the states yet. We are assuming (hoping?) that it has subtitles so we can understand it if we do manage to track it down.

What is the difference is between Bollywood and Kollywood? Bollywood (Bombay + Hollywood) is for Hindu language films made in Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay) on the northwestern side of India, and Kollywood (Kodambakkam + Hollywood) productions are Tamil language films made in Kodambakkam in Chenia, India on the southeastern side of the country.

My sister traveled to India last year. She visited the the Shore Temple in Mamallapuram, which is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage site and is absolutely stunning. She just happened to be there when Shankar was filming the movie and they asked if they could photograph her in front of the temple.

We were all exclaiming at Thanksgiving when a friend with whom she traveled informed Kely of the exciting news about the film, so we tracked down the movie trailer, and lo and behold, there she was on YouTube along with my niece.

Here’s the link to the trailer for those who are interested. (She’s at 48 seconds, the one with the hat and the camera, her daughter in front of her, standing in front of the Mahabalipuram Shore Temple , basking in her one second of fame.):

Just one of those quirky situations of being at the right place at the right time, only she didn’t realize it at the time, not knowing how famous the actors and director are. (She LOVED her trip to India all the same and wants go back.)

Who needs a whole 15 minutes of fame? One second can be just as fun!
