Disney Channel’s new original movie, The Cheetah Girls One World, will premiere on the Disney Channel on Friday, August 22 at 8p. In it, the Cheetah Girls (Chanel, Dorinda, and Aqua, and yes we had to look that up) travel to India to star in a Bollywood movie.

To support the premiere of The Cheetah Girls One World, which was filmed on location, Disney will feature a 12-part “making of” series of segments, The Road to The Cheetah Girls One World, starting Friday, May 16 at 8p on Disney Channel and http://www.disneychannel.com . New segments will premiere biweekly in May, June and July, and weekly in August.

This seems to call for a little list of J and teen authors who write about India or Indian-Americans. It is our pleasure to oblige:

Mitali Perkins
Uma Krishnaswami
Vandana Singh
Kashmira Sheth
Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
Rudyard Kipling
Tanuja Desai Hidier
Narinder Dhami

You might beef up any display with a selection of Bollywood movies. Most are suitable for young people. Best way to find them in CARL is to do a keyword search on “motion picture India”.
