Listen in pop-out player

Bollywood, the movie industry based in Mumbai, was once in competition with Lollywood, its Lahore equivalent. But those days are long gone. The Lahore film industry has died a gradual death, partly because religious sensibilities mean directors can not make the moves with mass appeal. There are though some new movies coming out which are attracting significant Pakistani audiences. But for all that the different approaches of the Indian and Pakistani cultures do sometime clash. Not least when Pakistani actors work in India. Ethiopian dancing is so wild and so exciting that you need re wine mixed with coke to calm down, according to James Jeffrey.
