Every year Bollywood make more movies than Hollywood. Its popularity has spread far and wide in the last few years beyond its traditional markets of Indian Sub-Continent. There are very popular in South East Asia and among the South Asian communities in the West. Bollywood music and dance videos are big hits even in China where the Chinese could not understand a single word muttered. Bollywood stars such as Aishwarya Rai, Hrithik Roshan and Shah Rukh Khan are now probably better known to more people around the globe than Hollywood stars. Their posters and postcards are sold in every other street corner in the streets of Kathmandu (and other South Asian cities).
