2014 年，史密森尼美国亚太裔中心 (Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center) 的“超越宝莱坞: 印度裔美国人塑造了整个民族”展会金奈和加尔各答巡回。 该巡回展是美国政府在印度进行的文化外交活动的一部分，开放对话并打破陈规，以帮助拉近两国人民之间的关系。
Begun as an exhibition on Indian American contributions to American history, the exhibition was quickly seen by the U.S. Department of State as something that would be interesting and applicable to audiences in India. Former Smithsonian curator Masum Momaya, the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibit Service (SITES), and the U.S. Embassy and Consulates in India collaborated to create a portable version of the exhibition that could travel through India, and Masum toured with it for two weeks. As thousands of Indians visited the exhibition, they asked questions and shared ideas with Masum. Throughout her time traveling Beyond Bollywood, she realized that the substantive and complex conversations she had with viewers were the most integral and dynamic part of the experience.
