Split Screen Podcast: Episode 14 – How Bollywood Director Vidhu Vinod Chopra Remade His Own Movie In Hollywood
It’s always a learning experience comparing films originating from one film industry, to another from a different country and culture, made by a different set of people interpreting the original. What makes this episode of the Split Screen Podcast a little unique, is that it’s the same Director as the original, interpreting his own film, decades later for a different film industry.
Join me, as I welcome Erin Fraser from the Bollywood Is For Lovers Podcast, and we see how Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s ‘Parinda’ (1989) in Bollywood, differs from his own remake of ‘Broken Horses’ (2015) in Hollywood, in Episode 13 of the Split Screen Podcast.
Here’s a quick reminder of what this podcast is about:
The Split Screen Podcast will compare and analyze movies that are adaptations of other works, directly with the source material that they were inspired by.

Being a host of a Bollywood themed Podcast myself, it’s incredibly difficult not to compare my own approach, to that of other Bollywood Podcast hosts. I’ve had a few on the show already, and there are more to come. So I get a little insecure when another pair of hosts, who are not South Asian, who only discovered Bollywood a few years ago, do it a whole lot better than me. But I’ve made my peace with it, as part of my ongoing growth as a human being, and am honored to have one half of that duo on this episode.
Erin and her co-host Matt, have their own Bollywood podcast, Bollywood Is For Lovers, where they approach the subject from an outsiders’ perspective. However, their in-depth analysis and summation of the 100+ years of Bollywood cinema is almost more comprehensive than that of a lifelong fan such as myself. Their episodes feature trends and eras of Bollywood, as well as educating the uninitiated on who’s who of the industry, which is as entertaining as they are informative.
