I hear people talk about Bollywood but I have no idea what it is. It has to do with Hollywood and I know it's something to do with overseas but that is all I know. Please excuse my ignorance towards this. Thanks.

Bollywood basically refers to the Indian film industry. From what I've seen, Bollywood films are usually 3 hours or longer and combine various movie elements (comedy, romance, action) with song & dance. The term Bollywood is a combination of Bombay (where Bollywood films originated) and Hollywood.

Bollywood is the copied same version of Hollywood. Its because of the city of India named Bombay now known as Mumbai. You can say Bollywood is the film industry of India where movies are made. I think Mumbai will put signs of Bollywood in there city just like Hollywood.
