Abstract This study explores the influence of Bollywood movies on the representation of Indian indentured labourers in Mauritian media and culture. The research investigates the ways in which Bollywood movies have impacted the depiction of Indian Indentured labourers in Mauritian society, and how this representation has changed over time. The study utilizes a qualitative method, including questionnaires, relevant literature reviews, and content analysis of popular Bollywood films and Mauritian media.
The findings indicate that Bollywood movies have had a significant impact on the representation of Indian indentured labourers in Mauritian media and culture. While earlier representations of indentured labourers in Mauritian media were largely negative and stereotypical, Bollywood movies have played a key role in challenging these stereotypes and promoting a more positive image of the Indian community in Mauritius.
The study highlights the importance of media representation in shaping cultural perceptions and argues that Bollywood movies have played a vital role in promoting a more nuanced and positive image of Indian indentured labourers in Mauritian society. The study concludes by discussing the implications of these findings for future research and for promoting cultural diversity in Mauritian society.
