Yash Raj Films (YRF) released Tuesday the trailer of its upcoming film Sultan. It stars an aging actor Salman Khan in and as Sultan – a Haryanvi wrestler.

Salman Khan is considered very close to India’s Hindu Prime Minister Narendra Modi and he tacitly helped Modi win Muslim votes in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.

In Sultan, a little-known Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma plays Sultan’s love interest – Aarfa, who also is an ambitious wrestler.

The Sultan trailer, with wrestling as its core theme, was launched by Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma.

A classic underdog tale about a wrestler who makes a comeback defeating all odds staked up against him, according to YRF, Sultan’s journey will bring alive his heartfelt love story.

Produced by Aditya Chopra and written-directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Sultan releases this Eid 2016.

Bollywood

Bollywood is a loose name stolen from the word ‘Hollywood’ for Hindi film industry in India.

Although Bollywood has a very bad reputation in the global film markets because of the poor quality of its films, the Bollywood actors exploit the sentiment of uneducated Indians by falsely projecting themselves as glamor gods and goddesses.

With over 800 films produced in India every year, India is the largest film production market in the world in terms of just the number of films produced. Although many regional language films are also produced in India, Bollywood is the main hub for Indian films.

Despite churning out a large number of films, Bollywood’s share is a poor 1% in the global film market of an estimated $15 billion out of which Hollywood alone rakes in over $11 billion.

Most Bollywood movies target the poor or lower-income groups of people who don’t have any other means of entertainment.

Obviously, Bollywood movies are made on shoestring budgets. Here the average production cost of an upmarket movie is just $3 million. And a high-end Bollywood movie earns a paltry $5 million or so at the box office.

No wise person wastes time on watching Bollywood movies. Only those consumers who behave with a herd mentality become fans of Bollywood actors and kill their time on their films. Are you a Bollywood film fan?
