The demand for quality entertainment has grown rapidly in recent years. The film industry has proliferated and morphed in response to this growing demand of the public. This proliferation of the film industry also brought about its classification. Hollywood began to get popular within the Western World while Bollywood and Kollywood began to gain popularity in the Eastern world, especially in India where these two film industries were based. Today, all three types of film industries are immensely popular within the public. There are several features which help to distinguish between these three film industries.
The primary feature which helps to distinguish between these three filming industries, are the actors and actresses who act in these films. Any Hollywood actress or actor can be vaguely classified as a Western actor. They behave and act (both in the real world and when filming) in typical western style. Their dress code can also be classified as Western. Hollywood films are transferred in the English language. Therefore the native language of these actors is English. Arguably, these actors and actresses have gained the most popularity in the world. Even though Hollywood is centered in California (USA), this filming industry has spread all over the world, together with the American culture. Hollywood actors and actresses are known to earn large amounts of money.
In comparison to Hollywood, Bollywood and Kollywood filming sectors are largely based in India. Bollywood is arguably more famous than Kollywood. Any Bollywood actress or actor can be easily distinguished from those in Kollywood and Hollywood because Bollywood actors mainly speak in the Hindi language (even though recent trends have shown a growing use of the English language). Bollywood actors and actresses can be vaguely classified as Indian (though there are actors from other countries such as Sri Lanka). Bollywood actresses commonly wear the traditional sari in India, but recent trends in cinema have also introduced Western clothing into Bollywood. Bollywood films are immensely popular in India and this popularity is also spreading to other countries around the world.
The Kollywood filming industry has its own uniqueness. A Tamil actress or actor can be easily distinguished not only from the language, but also from the dress-code. Specially, Tamil actresses wear saris in an unique Tamil style and is usually adorned with a large amount of gold jewelry. Kollywood actors and actresses help to portray to the world the uniqueness of the Tamil culture. The Kollywood filming industry has grown in popularity over the years, in India and is now also spreading to the rest of the world.
This article only gives an introduction to Hollywood, Kollywood and Bollywood. The internet is able to provide a vast amount of additional information about these three filming industries and their respective actors and actresses.
