This is a country of 1.2 Billion population, half of which is crazy for cricket and half is insane over Bollywood.
Well, there is some sort of magic in both Bollywood and Cricket for the Indian fans and that is why they are so possessive about it.
But keeping cricket on the other hand, Bollywood is something that a lot of people are obsessed with. And obsessive to a limit where they can’t even listen anything wrong about it.
So, if you know a Bollywood fan, you better not say these things to them:
1. “Bollywood movies are nonsense”
Really? As if you grew up without watching this nonsense, huh? Just because you have heard a lot from people here and there, you find these movies nonsense.
2. “Oh come on, I only watch Hollywood movies.”
So, what does that have to do with my liking towards Bollywood? If you love Hollywood, it’s your choice because I am happy with my taste.
3. “Bollywood movies are full of songs.”
So what if Bollywood films have a lot of songs, they have a unique element and everyone loves it a lot. And just to remind you, those are the songs that you happily dance on after getting drunk at a party.
4. “What’s with the Khans and Kapoors.”
What? What about them? Those people have run a legacy in the Indian cinema from last few decades and they will surely be a grand name in Bollywood always. Why do you care?
5. “Bollywood actors don’t know acting.”
Have you seen Amitabh Bachchan? Nawazuddin Siddiqui? Irrfan Khan? KangnaRanaut? If not, then shut up and stop saying that there are no good actors.
So guys, next time if you are around a Bollywood fan and you are not in love with Bollywood, please mince your words properly.
