Virtual Bollywood Trivia Night with Bay Area Young Professionals

On Thursday, November 12th, 2020, we at AIF’s Bay Area Young Professionals (BAYP) chapter conducted our first-ever Bollywood Trivia Night over Zoom! It was time to swap out our Pumpkin Spice Latte for a cup of Chai to learn and compete with friends to find out who knows B-town the best. Even folks who were not Bollywood experts had a shot at winning big in our general knowledge and music rounds.

Poster for the Virtual Bollywood Trivia Night. Nov 12th, 7-9pm. $15 general. $10 group. Poster features Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol from the 1995 Indian blockbuster movie "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge."

The event was a huge success. We all broke up into teams to answer questions spanning across movies, music, general knowledge, and all of our Bollywood guilty pleasures. It was a great way to bond with new people during the pandemic and test our knowledge about all things Bollywood. 100% of the funds raised at the event went to support AIF’s programs in India!

Our winning teams, “Khiladi” and “Bollywood Baadshahs,” received gift cards from the best restaurants in San Francisco: Rooh and August 1 Five.

Join us next time so you can win some fun prizes!
