I need your help, it's related to my picture book writing.
If you are non-Indian can you respond to the poll.

I adore Bollywood. I love Bride and Prejudice. Wait, is that technically Bollywood? I've seen others, too, but don't remember the names. Something with a character named "Tina"?

Also, on "So You Think You Can Dance", a reality TV dance show, they sometimes have Bollywood as a category and it tends to be very popular.

Definitely! Have seen it on television; playing on TVs at restaurants; have seen it at a friend's wedding; have friends who are involved in taking classes in this type of dance or whose kids are; and have even seen two Bollywood dance segments recently on Sesame Street. I love this type of dance, and would love to expose my kids to it.

Edited to add: I shared all this in case it's helpful to know where people are seeing it, but now I see that was a lot of details, haha!

I voted that I'd seen it--does Slum Dog Millionaire count? There's some at the end, I think. Seemed very disjointed from the rest of the movie to me

Yes Slumdog Millionaire does count. And yes it was disjoint. The majority of Bollywood movies are musicals with the songs woven in usually for the flirty, romantic scenes.

So fun. We always have to have an early supper if we're going to watch a Bollywood film. I really think the music can make or break a film because it's such an integral part.

Darshana, while I was in grad school, I learned that many of my Chinese and Filipino friends love Bollywood. I never knew until then how popular it was outside India.

I've seen bits and pieces, snippets in programs talking about Bollywood. I'm not sure I've seen a full performance, and consequently I'm not sure how to vote.

We used to watch in when we lived in Maldives. Reminded me of the very old "Dancing in the Rain" type movies. With drama!
