About the Indian Film Industry
The Bollywood and its statistics
Over 1,000 feature films are produced annually in India including the regional language films. India has the distinction of being the country which produces highest number of feature films in a year.
Almost 250 HINDI FILMS or those films produced in and around Mumbai city (previously Bombay) are released annually in India. Hindi film lovers and many film experts in Mumbai and international media now refer to it as Bollywood instead of the Bombay film industry.
