In the last decade or so, Indian films have become some of the most commercially successful in the world.
Some of the biggest names in the industry have earned millions, while others have made less.
Indias best-known stars include Sachin Tendulkar, Priyanka Chopra, Akshay Kumar, Priya Kumari and Priyapati Bose, among others.
Indian cinema is full of films with a deep sense of spirituality, as well as some that are a bit more experimental, with films that challenge the way we think and experience the world around us.
These include the spiritual-based films, such as Naxalite (1984), Ayanak, Ayanaka and Kumbh Mela (1995), and the social-political-political movies, like Bollywood-Indian movies like Bapu Bapur (1995) and Bapalu (1997).
Indias most celebrated actor, Anil Kapoor, has been the star of more than 1,300 films.
Kapoor’s films have received critical acclaim, including best picture and Golden Globe awards.
Kapur has also been nominated for multiple Oscars.
The director, Rajiv Gandhi, has also directed some of India’s biggest hits.
In the past decade or two, some of Indias most popular stars have earned fortunes.
Sachin, Aishwarya and Priya are among them.
Their films have made billions of rupees and their success has been celebrated by everyone from India’s media to the world, including in Hollywood.
However, some Indians filmmakers, including Akshak Kumar, have made some of their biggest hits while earning modest sums.
In fact, Kumar has earned almost $50 million since 2009.
The biggest Indian stars of recent years are Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, Rishabh Pant and Amitabhi Shetty, among many others.
Some even made films with their own names, like Akshaya Kumar’s Bapumati, which earned him his first Golden Globe nomination.
Some of the movies are also inspired by contemporary events in the country.
In one of the highest-grossing movies of the year, Bollywood veteran Rajkumar Hirani directed The Man of the Year (2009), which won the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar at the Venice Film Festival.
Other stars that have made an impact in India are Amit Shah, Deepika Padukone, Dinesh Bhardwaj, Prakash Parampara, Amitabha Bachchan and Priu Kulkarni.
