    film producer.

Influence of Bollywood
Bollywood began influencing musical films in the Western world, and played a particularly instrumental role in the revival of the American musical film industry.
Western musical genre, and subsequently films such as Chicago, The Producers Rent, Dream girls and Mamma Mia were produced, fueling a renaissance of the genre of Bollywood style.
Many Asian Underground artists, particularly those among the overseas Indian diaspora, have also been inspired by Bollywood music.
3. Honor and Award
Danny Boyles Slumdog Millionaire (2008), which has won four Golden Globes (Oscar)
and eight Academy Awards, was also directly inspired by Bollywood films
and is considered to be a homage to world commercial cinema.
The Bollywood musical film Lagaan (2001) was nominated for the
Academy Award for Best Foreign Language, and two other Bollywood films Devdas (2002)
and Rang De Basanti (2006) were nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

Some Indian Music Directorlike A.R. Rahman andR.D. Barman are playing vital role
in the world film industries like in Hollywood. Some others artist like, Amrish Puri, Om Puri,
and Mallika Serawat have been played in Hollywood.
Film Fare Awards, Star Screen awards, IIFA Awards, Zee Cine Awards,
Stardust Awards and National Film Awards are the main honor of Bollywood industry.
4. Popularity
Bollywood films are widely watched in South Asian countries, such as Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka.
Bollywood has experienced a marked growth in revenue in North American markets, and is particularly popular amongst the South Asian Communities in large cities as Chicago, Toronto and New York City.
The awareness of Hindi cinema is substantial in the United Kingdom, where they frequently enter the UK top ten.
Bollywood is also popular among African countries, e.g. Nigeria, Somalia, Ethiopia, South Africa and West Africa. Similarly in Oceania country, and south America (Brazil) also heavily influenced by Bollywood industry.

5. Media, Criticism and
Own Opinion
Today, Bollywood business depends more on false promises, fake numbers and lavish promotions.
Producers have understood that if they can run all the Cinemas house-full for 2 continuous weeks
they can recover/earn all the money. Even after a movie gets bad response, producers would
big-mouth about their success in terms of how much money they have made. This proves that
Bollywood is more about politics these days than entertainment which is possible by media
because of heavy money given for advertising in media.
Inside the industry, there is an inevitable reality but media break it outside for example,
slum dug milliner, which is the reality of India but all the Indian media said it is not true
on the other hand some films have been badly criticized by the Indian audience but
media said it is a popular and highly profitable movie, e.g. film kites.
Bollywood industry looks like a poor cousin to Hollywood.
Some shots are designed in the movie to dominate other countries like Pakistan, Nepal,
Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and China.
