So was I the only one a little lost at the musical number “Om Shanti Om” when the film seemed to be featuring in great length, characters we had never seen?  As the scene continued however, and we saw the female star from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, and even their signature handshake from the film, I began to understand that this cameo is not so unfamiliar.  It seems incredibly similiar to our equivalent of a star-studded cast like in Ocean’s Eleven.

This seems like a similiar strategy to reach a greater audience and entice people to come see it.  In one article I found on the internet, it mentions that Bollywood actors are considered to be almost demi-gods, so this seems to back up my theory.
