Introduction

Hindi cinema, or more popularly known as Bollywood, refers to the Hindi-language film industry in India. Based in Mumbai, India, Bollywood is actually of portmanteau derived from the words “Bombay” (Hindi cinema was formerly called Bombay cinema) and “Hollywood”, which is the central film industry in the United States. It falls under a bigger Indian cinema industry, known as “Indywood”, which covers other centers that launch films in the other Indian languages. The term Bollywood was first used during the 70s, which is also around the time when India beat out the United States as the biggest film-producing country in the world. The industry also launched the careers of numerous actors and actresses who would gain national and international fame.
