Bollywood Goes on Strike!

Also still pissed about the Mike Seaver thing.

A coalition of 22 unions representing actors, dancers, and various technicians have gone on strike in Mumbai, effectively shutting down India's prolific film industry. Strategically, the strike began on the eve of Hindu festival season, a time roughly akin to the summer blockbuster season in North America.
