  • I'm not entirely sure. I think it's movies made in India. Some people here are really obsessed with the stars over there, I don't really know why. I don't know it enough to praise or knock it, but I'd imagine i'd probably enjoy movies made in my own culture more. But by that same logic, I'd imagine Indians would appreciate it more than American cinema. I have a very strict "no foreign films" policy. They get you with the subtitles, next thing you know, you're reading books...

    • Obsessed with stars over there? What the hell? I haven't heard of even one.

    • Sorry, I meant on here, on GAG, haha. Literally never heard of one myself either, I just noticed a lot of questions asking people to rate the looks of certain Bollywood actors and actresses, like they seemed very eager to hear that these people were seen as "hot" as American stars.

  • The Indian equivalent of Hollywood. It seems to be really popular.

    • If it would be popular I would heard of it before.

    • That's why I said it seems to be popular. I didn't know anything about Bollywood until like last year, and now I hear about it all the time.

  • Movies, Soap Operas etc. They have tons of movies and their own local stars. I was actually on a Bollywood set, they were filming a Soap Opera and it was a scene where the man and the woman were on a bed kissing, it was very risque they said given the culture. The set we were in was a fale mansion but was cut up for filming so the could get the camera angles needed etc.

  • Bollywood is the Indian version of Hollywood, if you were to go to India you'd visit Bollywood instead of Hollywood like in the US.
