?It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.?(Austen 2001: 3). This is the well-known first line of Pride and Prejudice, the acclaimed novel by Jane Austen published in 1813. This line establishes the framework for the narrative of courtship and class issues that will serve to pervade the story. Then there is the lesser-known Bollywood adaptation of Austen's novel, known as Bride and Prejudice. This is a movie that was released in 2005 that carries the tagline, ?Bollywood meets Hollywood? and it's a perfect match.? (Wilson 2006: 323). This sets the scene for a story about love and a cultural conflict that will take place simultaneously. Both of these lines highlight the uniqueness of the two stories, but they also represent the similarities between them. The first line of the novel examines the notion of a blurred true/false reality in the novel, whereas the tagline from the movie brings in the theme of a conflict between cultures.
