Lhasa, Apr 12 (PTI) India may be far from Tibet but not Bollywood as its songs and stars are very popular among the youths of this remote Himalayan region who swear by the names of Shahrukh Khan and Ashwariya Rai.

The new generation Tibetan youth, who love to dress in jeans, drink coca cola or go to a disco, love to listen popular Hindi songs like "Pappu can't dance saala" (Jane Tu Ya Jaane Na) or "It's the time to disco.." (Kal Ho Na Ho) and wear kurta with capris.

"I love Hindi songs. I may not understand them but I like the beats and rhythm. They are real treat," said Sounag Gentsen, who works with the Tibet Autonomous Region administration.

The DVDs and CDs of Bollywood movies and songs are easily available in the music shops of Lhasa's busy streets like North Nyngthan or Barriku. Most of them are allegedly smuggled into China through either Nepal or Hong Kong and are available at a price between 10 to 20 Yuan (Rs 70 to Rs 140 range).

"The peppy Indian numbers just drive us crazy. They have a fresh effervescence," said Dechu Dekyi Chudrun, who is currently pursuing her engineering degree in Sichuan province, said. PTI
