Bollywood and its influence

If you are from Southeast Asia then you probably know very well that we love to watch movies on a regular basis. If you are not, then you know now. Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis etc are die hard movie fans. We also love to eat and wear new clothes and jewelry. If you go to a crowded market in India, you can easily find numerous wholesale clothing shops, restaurants and much more.

Back to movies. Bollywood, India’s film industry, is one of the biggest and most popular in the world. When it comes to ticket sales and number of films produced, Bollywood is at the top of the list. Recently, Bollywood has been going outside India and gaining more popularity in countries with high number of Indians. There are other film industries in Southeast Asia too but Bollywood is the most dominating one and also very popular in countries like Pakistan and Bangladesh.

If you live outside India, you are probably familiar with its popularity. Bollywood is really famous in foreign countries like New Zealand, Australia, United States of America, United Kingdom and Canada. A lot of movies made in Bollywood earn most of their money outside India these days. In fact, some of the movies are specifically made for Indians living in these countries.

In the end, one thing that is important to remember is that Bollywood plays a very important role in the lives of Southeast Asians.
