Abhishek Bachchan: Bollywood Should not be called Bollywood

I feel that now that Abhishek Bachchan have enough time to think about everything except focusing on his acting. That is why, he recently said that Bollywood should not be called Bollywood. He does and like the time and the things that it should be called Indian film industry.

From Film Journal:

"We prefer 'the Indian film industry,'" he says gently. "We're the largest film industry in the world, we make the most amount of films in a year and sell the most amount of tickets, so I think we have our own identity. We have the utmost respect for Hollywood and the films made in the United States, but I think it wouldn't be fair to name the Indian film industry after Hollywood. Unfortunately, it's come to stick and it's in the dictionary and I don't think we'll get away from it."

I really cannot understand why he’s so concerned about the name because it is the name Bollywood that is associated with these actors. Abhishek Bachchan perhaps think that he’s a super hero but the reality is that is still in the shadow of his father and his wife.

Dance like Bollywood Movies for your Fitness!

I really find it difficult to understand the attitude of the American people because on the one hand, they have all the facilities available to them to eat all kind of junk foods that make them very fat an overweight and on the other hand, they are extremely sensitive about fitness. So, Bollywood movies style dancing is becoming very popular in different cities of America because some people feel that this is a very good way to maintain physical fitness.

I do not know of anyone in India cool to feel that by dancing like Hollywood movies they will be able to keep their physical fitness. So, this is a new discovery that has taken place in America and the people who have discovered this matter should get some kind of award.

Aishwarya Rai: Father is more important than French award?

Aishwarya Rai may not be a very successful actress in Bollywood movies today but you have to agree with me that she gets the most media coverage and she is also known widely outside of India. That is why; I am not that much surprise that she got the second highest civilian honor from French government. Well, I really like to know the reason for her getting it except her being famous outside of France. I really wish that French government could explain a bit more about the movies for which she got. Frankly, if you ask my opinion then I have to say that I think that an actress like Madhuri deserved this kind of honor more than Aishwarya Rai. However, Madhuri is not that well known outside of India and I suspect is anyone know about her in France.

Anyway, it is interesting to see that Aishwarya Rai could not accept the award yet because her father was sick and she informed that until her father became totally all right, she would not attend any ceremony without her father. This is an interesting thing to me in the sense that all the actress and actresses wait for this kind of award eagerly and after getting it, I wonder if any of them would wait long time. So, yes, I think that Aishwarya Rai has done a good thing and she will get a lot of praise from her fans and she has said a good example as an Indian woman. The people of India give a lot of value to their family member and Aishwarya Rai is perhaps a reminder of that value.

I feel that it is time, she acts in an animation movie. Don’t you agree?
