Bollywood actor Salman Khan has surprised many by declaring that he hates the name 'Bollywood", which is a copycat of its western counterpart - Hollywood. He posted on his Twitter page that he loved the term 'Hi-Fi' for Hindi film industry, instead of Bollywood.
The first person in the film industry to endorse Salman"s view was Riteish Deshmukh. Oneindia readers are also of the opinion that the actor has come up with a cool idea.
“Hello Salmanji what an interesting thought, nobody ever thought about this so good," wrote Dipti Mahavadiya. “I agree with Salman Khan' s idea of Hi-Fi, as Hindi films are not only made in Mumbai; it is made in many parts of India. So, why only one name which is on the goodwill of English films? Good idea sir," echoed Amir.
Another anonymous reader wrote, “That really makes sense. Hollywood se nikla Bollywood. Our Indian film industry had now grown up to such an extent that it is an international brand which doesn"t need any goodwill names to put on top. Now, let"s bring a change and create our own name. I know it"s difficult to replace the word 'Bollywood" from our minds but we came out of the word 'Bombay", right? I don"t know Hi-Fi or Wi-Fi but time to change the cloned name."
Well, a name for the Hindi film industry without the word 'wood" would sound better and more original. Many Indian film personalities and the public will agree with Salman on this! Time to go beyond the wood!
