Bollywood – additional information

Many believe that Bollywood is synonymous with the Indian film industry. It isn’t. Bollywood is the Hindi language film industry based in Mumbai and is just one component of the larger Indian film industry which is made up of various production centers in various languages. From 2000 onwards, Bollywood’s popularity grew on a global scale and the profile and pay package of its leading stars grew accordingly.
Shah Rukh Khan, with an estimated personal net worth of 600 million U.S. dollars topped the richest Bollywood actors as of August 2014 list. Amitabh Bachchan came second with an estimated personal net worth of 400 million U.S. dollars. Bachchan’s career has spanned more than four decades and he has appeared in almost 200 Indian films. For a man in his seventies, there are no signs that he is slowing down as 2013 marked the year of his Hollywood debut in Baz Luhrmann’s remake of ‘The Great Gatsby’. Bachchan has also made a name for himself on social media and in 2013 he was the considered the most active Bollywood celebrity on Twitter with an average of 27.5 tweets per day.
When it comes to Asian cinema, Bollywood isn’t the only multi-million dollar film industry. Chinese films are also proving to be popular with audiences when we take into consideration the box office revenue of the most successful movies of all time in China. As of April 2014, the most successful movie ever in China was the American film ‘Avatar’, but in second place was ‘Lost in Thailand’ which generated 1265 million Yuan at the Chinese box office. The comedy ‘Lost in Thailand’ was released in 2012 and according to the Wall Street Journal; the film’s success was considered a welcome change to an industry dominated by historical epics and martial arts action films. This dispels just one of the many stereotypes of Asian cinema.
