The Times of India Bollywood Awards 2013

Apr 07, 2013

We're all familiar with Hollywood, but did you know that India's film industry is one of the biggest in the world? Lasting over three days, The Times of India Film Awards took place in Vancouver. B.C. Kidzworld was on the scene to get the scoop on who took home the iconic elephant trophies!

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!

The Bollywood Awards 2013 Highlights

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!

Hosted by Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma, the night included a performance by Aishwarya Rai (her first live performance since having a child) as well as her husband Abishek Bachchan riding into the stadium on a cart, sending kisses to his fans as he went. 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!

I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online.

Which channel do you think as of today is the best channel for kids today on cable. I would probably go with Disney XD. It's just as good as it was back in 2009 in my opinion and it has a great selection of shows. What do you think is the definitive channel for kids in 2016?
