I admire the swagger of the women in the 40 s. They were pure class and direct to the point haha.
Here is a tune that demonstrates my point of view to perfection.

Here is a brief interview of Mr Bill. I. Am aka Billers aka Bilal on BOLLYWOOD!!! Enjoy! 🙂
Tell us the basic features and aspects we need to know about Bollywood films?
erm…Ok here are the basics, an average film lasts 3 ½ hours. It has 6-8 songs and/or dances, and there are no kissing, nudity, sex or excessive swearing, or at least there was not for a long time…now I hear there might just be some breaking of these rules a little.
What are the story lines/plot like in a typical Bollywood film really?
They are based in downtown India then, there is a dance, boy meets girl…another dance, heart break, another dance…then they are reunited and finally guess what?
Another grand finale DANCE!!!!!
Name a couple of big stars in Bollywood?
Amitabh Bachan – he’s like the big actor of bollywood, people worship him and featured in a lot of films! He is like a mix between Sean Connery and George Clooney.
Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai – they are like the power couple of bollywood. She is the former miss world and he is the son of the biggest bollywood star, so a match made in heaven ( also very convenient). They are like the Brad and Angelina
Shahrukh Khan – he is the next big thing, the younger cooler version of Amitabh Bachan and will soon take over as the king of bollywood. He is sort of like a Leonardo Di’Caprio.
Kareena Kapoor – she is like the cool young IT girl of bollywood, she is like the acting version of Paris Hilton….
Shilpa Shetty – she had a mediocre career, but then her stint on Big Brother UK boosted her career and she was hot property for a while, but her career has dwindled again. She says she is like Angelina but she really isn’t.
Any reality TV shows in india?
Yes, there is one, which is the equivalent of Big Brother.
It is called Big Boss !!!
Big Boss!! ha ha Amazing, Finally what are your views on Bollywood films?
They are very good in many ways especially off the screen, meaning they help the economy, provide a form of escapism as most cinematic experiences do and they are an extension of the values of the indian culture! Love it!
