What is Bollywood? Most of the people consider it to be Indian cinema. But on the contrary, it is not. Indian cinema consists of films produced in various languages across India and Bollywood is just a subset of it, that caters the Hindi speaking population.
Through this post I would like to break some stereotypes about Bollywood. People still think that Bollywood movies are made of boring scripts, weird dance moves and lots of songs. But these are the things of the past now. In recent times, Bollywood has produced movies that have featured in IMDB’s top 250, to name a few- Dangal, 3 idiots, Munna Bhai M.B.B.S, Chak de! India and PK. Bollywood movies are not only tasting commercial success worldwide but are also getting critically acclaimed. Bollywood movies have attracted famous Hollywood celebrities to play a cameo in them. Some of the famous celebrities that have featured in Bollywood movies are – Sylvester Stallone, Snoop Dogg, Denise Richards and Kylie Minogue.
Bollywood actors and actresses are not far behind. Priyanka Chopra who is a former Miss World and a famous Indian actress is taking Hollywood by storm. She is currently the leading actress of the famous T.V. show Quantico and will be seen in the upcoming Hollywood movie Baywatch. Another famous Indian actress, Deepika Padukone starred in XXX: The Return of Xander Cage. Irrfan Khan has been featured in a lot of Hollywood movies like – Slumdog Millionaire, Inferno, The Namesake, Jurassic World and The Amazing Spider-Man.
Bollywood has grown immensely over the past years and has gained recognition worldwide by providing inventiveness, entertainment and creativity to the masses. It has proven to reflect India’s talent and capabilities in terms of entertainment as well. So, Bollywood is just an aspect of Indian cinema, however, a very integral one. Well, after reading my blog, I guess it’s time for you guys to grab a bucket of popcorn, get yourself a beverage and watch a nice Bollywood movie.
