Film Industry plays an important role in Indian Economy. The Indian ﬁlm industry is the largest in the world, with more than 1,000 ﬁlms produced every year in more than 20 languages.
The Indian ﬁlm industry is projected to grow from US$3.2 billion in 2010 to US$5 billion by 2014 at a CAGR of 14.1%. Growth is expected to come from the expansion of multiplexes in smaller cities, investments by foreign studios in domestic and regional productions, the growing popularity of niche movies
and the emergence of digital and ancillary revenue streams.
With 3.3 billion tickets sold annually, India also has the highest number of theater admissions. The Indian ﬁlm market derives almost 90% of its revenue from non-English language movies, largely dominated by Hindi ﬁlms, followed by South Indian ﬁlms and other regional ﬁlms.
