Bend It Like Beckham bound for India

British filmmaker Gurinder Chadha is taking the stage version of her hit film Bend It Like Beckham to India. The play is based on the 2002 film, which told the story of a Punjabi girl who pursues her dream of playing football in London against her family's will. The film, which tackled issues such as cultural opposition and racism, launched the careers of Parminder Nagra (who went on to star in American medical drama ER) and Keira Knightley, and also starred Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Anupam Kher and Archie Panjabi. Footballer David Beckham also made a cameo appearance in the film. Chadha adapted the film for the stage with a musical spin, adding a Bollywood dose of dance and music, and it opened in Britain in May last year. – IANS
