KHOJ International Artists’ Association and Priya Paul presented
The Other Woman
Exhibition of Film Memorabilia from the Priya Paul Collection
The exhibition was an homage to vamps, anti-heroines, seductresses and dancers of Bombay cinema. The women who have been a foil to the innocent-as-lamb image of the leading lady, because of their courage, their boldness and their sexual freedom, take centre stage in this exhibition. Apart from showcasing Hindi cinema memorabilia, the exhibition also showcased Desperately Seeking Helen, a film by Eisha Marjara about a young Indian immigrant in the United States and her search for her childhood film-idol, the legendary Bombay cinema femme fatale Helen.
