Congress MP Shashi Tharoor was surprised when a Punjabi movie featured his book "An Era of Darkness: The British Empire in India".

Sharing the still on Twitter, Tharoor wrote: “So glad that Punjabi cinema (is that Pollywood for Punjab or Jollywood for Jullundur?) is depicting characters who read books! No one in Bollywood seems to have the time for such mundane pursuits...”

 ‘Uda Aida’ is an Indian-Punjabi Drama-comedy film written by Naresh Kathooria and directed by Ksshitij Chaudhary.

Meanwhile, Tharoor announced last week that his "magnum opus" book on the theory, evolution and practice of nationalism will be out next month.
