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.

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!

I know little to nothing about Tom Hiddleston, but he seems like a really nice guy, and I'd hate for Taylor to ruin his reputation. However, that isn't why I dislike their relationship. I dislike the fact that they are together because Taylor cheated on Calvin Harris with him and is playing the victim, as she does. Once her and Tom split, which they- inevitably- eventually will, she is going to blame it all on him although it will not be his fault. (If Tom is to ever cheat on her, she has absolutely no right to cry and whine about it. Maybe it'll be his fault, but it won't be his fault, if you get what I'm saying.) "EndlessDream" wrote:I give them 2 months until they break up.  That's a bit generous, considering Taylor's non-exhaustive track record. But you're probably right, yeah. 2 months, maybe 3.

I give them 2 months until they break up. And it won't be Tom's fault. Hopefully it will happen before I spend a day with Tom so that there is no chance he would bring Taylor with him. Also, yes, she is just using guys for music.
