The Indian film industry, known as Bollywood, produces over one thousand movies each year, the largest number in the world movie industry.
Bollywood movies are watched in countries with NRI (non-resident Indian) population in Europe, Southeast Asia, Canada, the US, Australia, New Zealand, and some African countries.
Regular movie theaters in the Bay area also play some Bollywood movies along with Hollywood movies.
A new Hindi movie, Band Baja Barat, was recently playing on Big Cinemas in Fremont and Century Theater in Union City. A young and ambitious woman, Anushka Sharma, assisted by her male partner, Ranveer Singh, starts her own business of wedding planning and makes it a big success. It is a pretty good and funny movie. If you get a chance, go catch it!!
