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!
