It’s not easy to hear that the Bollywood film city, Filmcity, is being accused of some pretty bad things and it’s even harder to believe if you’re a movie buff.
Stats show that Bollywood movie sales and people’s shahid kapoor haircut have gone up over the last few years and we’re looking forward to more movies coming out in 2017 than ever before. That means more actors, actresses, songwriters, producers and directors are all happy with what they’re doing at Film City and it can’t be bad if they’re making more movies than ever before.
