Indian films gain fans, influence — even in Hollywood
Hollywood movies may still dominate the world market.
But the United States does not boast the world’s largest film industry — and the country that does, India, is more and more becoming a player on the international scene.
As well as right here, in what may not quite accurately be called the movie capital of the world anymore.
With some 1,000 releases per year, India’s movie output is, by one measure, almost double this country’s: According to the Motion Picture Association of America, 560 major and independently distributed films were released here in 2010.
