Don’t Go! Stay at Bolliday Holiday All Night! Thumka Thursdays: “Pardesi Pardesi”

I may sound like the Weather Grinch, but I don’t really care. It’s December 1st and it’s bloody hot out! WTF?! As much as I’d like to live the Bollygay Baadshah lifestyle, I need the weather to start feeling a little less like Bombay more like The Himalayas. We are in New York, the Rockefeller Tree has been lit up already and everywhere you go, you’re bombarded with Christmas music.

Bolliday Holiday with The Banyan Tree Project

Have you caught the commercials during your favorite Hulu show about HIV in the South Asian community? If not, you’re clearly not watching the right shows.

Thumka Thursdays: A Butch Shilpa finds her “Jogan”

Thumka Thursdays: A Butch Shilpa finds her “Jogan”

How do you feel about Shilpa Shetty as a gay icon? She’s always been one in my dancey-Bolly brain with her undeniably fabulousness. Everything from the super lusterous locks (sure, that’s not a weave…and I look like Hrithik Roshan) to her liquid liner rimmed eyes, to her may-as-well-be lethal thumka, to her very own Bollywood love story, screams for every gay man to want to be her…or at least be

Thumka Thursdays: Madhuri Gives Sholay a Theme Song

Thumka Thursdays: Madhuri Gives Sholay a Theme Song

There are only two songs that, when they play over the Desilicious speakers, I toss my drink aside (and I NEVER waste a Ciroc coconut soda), throw on my invisible ghungroo and jump on the center box to bust out the film’s exact choreography in its entirety. One of those songs is Madhuri Dixit’s “Aaja Nachle.” From the first tinkle of payal, this song gets all the queens excited to

Thumka Thursday: Stealing Fire From Your Neighbor

Welcome to Thumka Thursdays, a new weekly feature on Pop Kulcha that will, you guessed it, be all about sexy item numbers. We’ll dissect the talent, music, choreo, fashion and everything that makes the song fabulous or abhorrent. Here we go. For week one we’ve chosen a song that elicits a hip swing from even the most cantankerous straight unclejis.”Beedi” from Vishal Bhardwaj’s Omkara is a serious storm of a
