Test your knowledge of Hindi cinema with a quiz that will be held at 21 outlets of a pub chain across the country, including Mumbai

The city of dreams is synonymous with the movies. From the crowd surrounding the homes of actors to airport-style files, Bollywood isn't just an obsession for many, it's an aspiration. And next week, an event that will take place across 21 outlets of a pub chain across five cities will give fans an opportunity to test their knowledge through a quiz.

Organised by Ace of Pubs, a live-hosted discussion and trivia show that brings quiz nights to bars, pubs and restaurants, the quiz comprises four rounds — buzzer round, AV round, rapid fire and a special dance-off round. "You generally always have that one friend or a group of friends who only talk in Bollywood dialogues. So, this is for anyone who calls themselves a Bollywood fanatic. The quiz isn't difficult but positively challenging," thinks organiser, Tilak Shah.
