Bollywood based in Mumbai may be known the world over, but it is only one part of India’s mega-sized movie industry which also boasts of other major filmmaking centres like Chennai, Hyderabad and Kolkata. With over 2000 films made in Hindi and regional languages, India is the ‘numero uno’ in the world in terms of number of movies produced every year. An emerging trend has been the increase in number of documentary and independent films being made.

The story of India’s television sector is equally impressive. With over 800 channels, TV broadcasting has been a sunrise sector in Indian economy from the past decade. The sector’s recent explosive growth is driven by high customer demand, growing ad revenues and increasing subscription revenues arising from greater adoption of set-top boxes.
