Bollywood Rising!

December 9, 2016 5:44am CST
We say that Bollywood (India) is the big thing next to Hollywood, for the industry has grown like anything. It is no more just about the melodramas revolving around the Indian family values, but more about the way our country is embracing modernization and globalization. Whether be it Imtiaz Ali's travel-based picturesque movies, or Zoya Akhtar's modern Indian society flicks, Bollywood is surely moving on...

Yeah. I know Bollywood is making strides or inroads because there was a big convention in Tampa, Florida USA (saw it on YouTube) and all the Bollywood stars were there, and Priyanka Chopra danced with John Travolta, and a bunch of other stuff was going on! It's one thing to be popular in your country. But when another country is excited and knows about your work, then you know you've made your mark!

You have the name of a very popular movie star!. I think the acting has to be improved to get wider appeal and realism I am Indian, but find it hard to stomach the the acting, although I do enjoy some of the dance and song routine...not all though..

you may be right but outside people with indian heritage bollywood has little to no impact here. To really move on it needs to appeal to a wider audience in my opinion.

I don't live far from Hollywood, which has changed a lot from the early years. We see old money and now some up and coming new money in the industry. I think Bollywood has talented people just like Hollywood. It takes people time to make a name for themselves when they aren't from a family already in the business. One example Drew Barrymore's family was in the business, so she already had her foot in the door. There are many other names I just wanted to give one example of how much easier it is for her, then several people that I have watched in Bollywood like Priyanka Chopra. Really talented young woman.
