look at the ahem... tropes here (or is it memes? i hope some po-co-po-co-po-mo* reader will enlighten me).
white boy (what an apt name: kattan, for those unfamiliar with tamil, i believe this means junglee, anyway a good approximation to monkey-boy, which, serendipitously, he played anyway) heads to bollywood, like jerk who made 'slumdog millionaire'.
and further, look at how anybody who worked on 'slumdog' is now a brand by themselves. and, predictably, they seem to be all mohammedans. they are also probably all complaining about housing discrimination in mumbai.
*pocopocopomo: politically correct, post colonial, post modern. these are the people who say 'trope' and 'praxis'.
