India’s hottest export, Bollywood, is definitely a collection of brash film stars, seething with sexiness and lethal sensuality. With each and every release, the Bollywood movie line-up is growing in size as young Indian girls are extremely enthralled by Bollywood. These Bollywood-stars are all constantly flaunting their golden showers of money at the box office, and are the hot favourites at the bars on Saturdays and Sundays. It is also often reported that there are several other hugely successful actresses making a good part of their income from supporting roles in movies.
So the next question would be how these girls earn so much from such an “unrealistic” source? Well, the answer is really quite simple. For one, the number of people watching the Bollywood movies on the television screen is simply astronomical. Secondly, the common tendency among the female population in India to rely heavily on the concept of love for their source of income means that girls who are attracted to a leading actor may actually try to get some work done around his/her household.
This is the truth behind the growing popularity of Bollywood in the western world. On one hand, due to the massive number of television channels that broadcast Bollywood and its movies, more people around the world are actually accessing Bollywood’s movies from their computers or mobile phones.
On the other hand, the worldwide popularity of Bollywood films, as compared to other forms of popular entertainment, like western television and cinema, has paved the way for the further expansion of Bollywood as a far more serious form of entertainment. Many Bollywood-stars have now become much more than actors – they are actors in their own right, and while this shows that Bollywood has really managed to penetrate the real world, it also demonstrates the growing influence of Bollywood in India’s domestic entertainment industry. Moreover, the increasing numbers of Bollywood movies are already big news in the world of movie distribution and cinema news.
Films are primarily made from material such as script, storyboard, music, costumes, set design, props, etc. All of these things are usually realized by a team of creative people – but it is usually the talented artists and writers of Bollywood who make their movies better. In fact, many Bollywood productions, especially the super hits, require huge amounts of financial backing, which a good majority of the film industry’s executives (known as “sabzi”) can never afford, and hence Bollywood-stars find it easier to get work done in their homes.
It is estimated that Bollywood has earned about $40 billion for the Indian economy, and thus any possible debt it may suffer from due to financial losses is obviously still kept within manageable parameters. This is all the more due to the overwhelming success of Bollywood movies, which have been regularly placed on the top of the list in terms of sales of most DVD/Blu-Ray discs sold around the world.
The fascinating part of Bollywood in the west is the fact that some movie stars and their crew, after making a movie in Bollywood, may then put it out in their home country without the need for any special treatment. A good example of this phenomenon is Anushka Sharma’s appearance in the movie “Slumdog Millionaire”, which is perhaps one of the best examples of a western Bollywood film.
One of the most telling characteristics of Bollywood is the fact that it is quite willing to adapt the style and motifs from various western films, to make a point. For instance, most Bollywood movies are shot to music, with the musical score in the film mimicking the most modern kind of sound.
