Bollywood undoubtedly dominates a major part of our lives.
The obsession for Hindi cinema knows no boundaries in India. We can never, ever do without a regular dose of Bollywood movies. And when not watching them on the big screen, we're tracking our matinee idols on social media.
Off late, Bollywood has taken a turn towards a more realistic and accurate depiction of life. However, not everything we see in Bollywood is exactly the truth.
