Dream Factory Worker

India churns out over 800 films a year, around half of them from the Hindi film factory of Mumbai, universally known as "Bollywood." The films are renowned for their over the top, colorful escapism filled with musical interludes involving hundreds of extras. Radio New Zealand producer Simon Morton traveled to Mumbai and embarked on a personal mission to achieve celluloid eternity as one of those extras.
