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.
