Bollywood 101

For those of you not in-the-know, Bollywood is the name used for Indian language films (usually in Hindi) made in Mumbai, which make up a huge per cent of the films produced in India. In fact, Bollywood creates more films per year than Hollywood, and you may have already seen many Bollywood stars in International ad campaigns. For example, mega Bollywood actress and former Miss Universe Aishwarya Rai is often called "the most beautiful woman in the world" and has appeared on Oprah and in the famous DeBeers Diamond ads!

This year The Times of India Film Awards took place in Kidzworld's hometown, Vancouver B.C.! Indian stars flew in to celebrate for three days straight, from April 4-6th, and if there's one thing Bollywood is known for, it's colorful celebrations and festivities, and much like a Bollywood film all three nights were packed full of dancing, singing, and glitter!

There was no denying Shah Rukh Khan's starpower, every time the cameras landed on him the crowd went wild, and he gave an energetic performance that brought every audience member to their feet near the end of the show. Other acts included British-born starlet Katrina Kaif and Best Actress Winner Priyanka Chopra (who kicked off her number by arriving in an orchid and wearing a diamond-encrusted body suit!

"Set in the fictional town of Rosewood, Pennsylvania, the series follows the lives of four girls, Aria Montgomery, Hanna Marin, Emily Fields, and Spencer Hastings, whose clique falls apart after the disappearance of their leader, Alison DiLaurentis. One year later, the estranged friends are reunited as they begin receiving messages from a mysterious figure named "A", who threatens to expose their deepest secrets, including ones they thought only Alison knew. At first, they think it's Alison herself, but after her body is found, the girls realize that someone else is planning on ruining their perfect lives." It's based off the book series by the same name and it's these girls that get tormented by "A" and it's like a mystery. You'd probably want to start from the beginning or it'd be hard to understand, it's on Netflix.
