The ever-growing distribution of Bollywood films worldwide, and in Europe, brings into focus the translational practices of dubbing and subtitling as crucial elements that affect the reception of this cinema abroad, as well as the role they play as cultural filters of one culture to another. In the past few years, the use of Indian accents in Bollywood cinema have caused dissent on the way specific linguistic cultures have been depicted and translated, problematising the use of multilingualism and its nuances in India. Thus, is cinema a universal language?
