THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH and DADA KONDKE

THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH and DADA KONDKE


To mark the remarkable contribution made by the Chaplin of Marathi cinema - Dada Kondke, was one of those rare persons in the industry who ensured that people enjoyed life through his films. He was criticised for his vulgarity and double meaning dialogue but that didn't deter him from carrying on, regardless. Now the noted book publisher company Penguin is included Dada Kondke in their new book titled 'The Greatest Show on Earth' along with veteran Bollywood celebrities Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, Meena Kumari, Madhubala etc...

Penguin has selected an extract from Dada Kondke's very much popular autobiographical book 'Ekta Jeev' written by well known Marathi writer Anita Padhye. 'Ekta Jeev' is the only Marathi book which is selected.

'The Greatest Show on Earth' is based on the great celebrities of Bollywood. Hindi films go deep into us. They allow us to play a number of roles... They offer us a vocabulary for the moments that are too deep-or sometimes too improbable-for language. Bollywood rules our lives: it entertains us, gives us dreams, fills us with longing, and makes us laugh. It is glorious and it is absurd. The greatest show on earth celebrates all that is fascinating about Hindi cinema. Writers and industry insiders like Saadat Hasan Manto, Salman Rushdie, Bhisham Sahni, R.K. Narayan, Ismat Chughtai, Suketu Mehta, Shobhaa Dé, Dev Anand, Anita Padhye & Manna Dey write about superstars and strugglers, filmmakers and playback singers, on-screen kisses and off-screen romance, the casting couch and censorship. It is compiled and edited by Jerry Pinto. This eclectic, wide-ranging anthology will inform and delight everyone with an interest in Indian cinema and popular culture.
