Around 1468, merchant Afanasi Nikitin became the first Russian to set foot on the Indian soil, initiating relations between two nations that have been growing stronger since then. Around 1949, Dharti-Ke-Lal Directed by K. A. Abbas became the first Indian film to be seen by Russian – then Soviet – audience.
Since then, Russian people have seen more than 300 Indian films while legendary actors like Raj Kapoor and Mithun Chakraborty are house hold names in Russia where a 24- hour Indian Movie channel dubbed in Russian language is operating today. Quite a few of our traditional value systems are identical in the Russian way of life. They call tea as ‘chai’ being the first obvious similarity you will notice.
