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!

So, then two dogs walk into a doghouse. The first dog says, "I can't believe you have a doghouse as fancy as this!". The one who owns the doghouse says, "I can't believe you're so stupid!".
