Bollywood is the Mumbai-based Hindi-language film industry in India. It is one of the largest film producers in the world, producing more than 1,000 films a year and reaching a wider audience than Hollywood.
Bollywood movies are famous for their colourful and elaborate dance sequences which are dynamic, energetic and tongue-in-cheek. The style is theatrical in nature and is a mixture of Modern Indian, Bhangra and Arabic while also including Western influences like Hip Hop, Jazz and Funk.
