Shyam Benegal is one of India's most respected film-makers.
In the 1970s he was at the forefront of the so-called "New Wave" of Indian cinema, an art house movement that challenged Bollywood norms with socially conscious films.
He tells Tom Brook why India's surging economy means, slowly but surely, that Asian cinema is entering the Western mainstream, a phenomenon he calls "reverse colonialism".
HARDtalk Extra can be seen on BBC World at 0330 GMT, 0830 GMT, 1430 GMT, 1830 GMT, 2330 GMT.
