Hollywood vs Bollywood: A comparative study of the two Tinseltowns

A Potpourri of Vestiges Feature 

The name "Bollywood" is a portmanteau derived from Bombay - the former name for Mumbai, India's financial capital - and Hollywood, the hub of the American film industry. 
While Bollywood strictly relates to the Hindi-language film industry, the term is often incorrectly used as a reference to the whole of Indian cinema. Bollywood is not only one of the largest film producers in India but also one of the largest centres of film production in the world.

Ever wondered about the differences between the two Tinseltowns? Want to learn more about each of them? Well, in that case, the following Infographic is all you need!

    That was a great comparative chart.. :-)

  2. Nice graphical comparison of both. I actually thought the article was one of your usual astute dissection of cinema :) In any case, a good read on commercial aspects!
    Between, I am surprised to see Channing Tatum in highest paid!

  3. Glad you liked it... a reader had sent it over and I kind of found it interesting! Even I was surprised to see Tatum so high on the list :-)
