Bollywood films

One of the things that make Bollywood films so popular is the music. Many of the films contain a lot of musical numbers that are current with the music that is popular at the time. These songs are liked by so many that they can be very lengthy which the audience is actually used to and fond of. The actors are not required to actually sing for the musical segments. If an actor does not have singing talents, a voice track is played and they lip sync the words. Many actors do this and it is a common practice that does not deter from the quality of the film.

The dancing segments are another thing that makes them so popular. The dances are choreographed very precisely and there are often a lot of actors and dancers involved, sometimes even hundreds. These large scale dance numbers are elaborate and full of energy that entices audiences. In other countries that publicize a Bollywood film release, they often advertise them by showing the dance segments because they are known so well all over the world.
