Bollywood Stars!

May 21, 2013

Bollywood is the nickname for Hindi-language movies made in India, and Bollywood actually produces more movies per year than Hollywood! With so many movies made a year, there’s no shortage of stars to follow. Check out the who’s who of Bollywood Stars!

Salman Khan

Salman Khan is considered one of the biggest stars in India, and even Asia overall. He was born into the business, the son of actor/screenwriter Salim Khan. Often running into scrapes with the law and tabloids, he’s known as the bad boy of the Bollywood scene.

Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra is an actress, singer and songwriter. She won Miss World and Femina Miss India World titles in 2000, and has been a rising star ever since. Not content just to act, she also aspired to earn her degree in engineering, hosts a reality television show, writes columns for an Indian newspaper and is considered a major style icon.

Shahrukh Khan

Probably one of the biggest names in Bollywood, Shahrukh Khan is an escapable name in Indian films (he’s even earned the nickname The King of Bollywood or The King of Romance.) He has earned many awards and starred in every style of movie, even the Indian government has honoured his work!

Ranbir Kapoor

You could say it all runs in the family for Ranbir Kapoor – both his parents are actors, but he has definitely earned his place as a star, winning an award for Best Debut Male Performance back in 2007. He also hosted the recent Times of India Bollywood Awards!
