Fatima Bhutto—New Kings of the World: Dispatches from Bollywood, Dizi, and K-Pop
Meet the Author: Fatima Bhutto - New Kings of the World: Dispatches from Bollywood, Dizi, and K-Pop. Fatima Bhutto offers a vivid look at the popular culture emerging from the East, challenging America’s soft power dominance. She travels widely and interviews leading figures in the new global pop culture, most notably Shah Rukh Khan, the reclusive Bollywood actor-singer-dancer and the world’s number-one star. She shows how this new pop culture combines secular modernity with traditional values and is voraciously consumed by millions, from villages to megacities in a globalized world. In conversation with Nermeen Sheikh, Co-Host and News Producer at Democracy Now!. Followed by a book sale and signing.
