Abstract

The medium of film has been one of the most influential communication tools to the masses since its emergence. Life is reflected in cinema and many a times our perspective of life is manipulated by what we see in the media. There have been various studies conducted of various cultures (including African American, Asians in general, etc) being represented in a stereotypical way in Hollywood movies. However, there have not been studies about how Indians are portrayed in Hollywood movies. This study aims to find how Hollywood has portrayed Indians and Indian culture in their movies, also, to see if and how they are stereotyped.
