Bollywood has always been influential in India. Indian cinema is a major factor in the fashion statement in India. There are many other ways Bollywood has influenced us. Similarly, we as an audience have also influenced Bollywood. Cinemas highly value Hindi movie reviews from audiences. Reviews are popular among people who follow their celebrities’ movies and their culture. If any popular celebrity is on-street many people follow them or at least they want a selfie with them. So there is an immense fan following of celebrities and their stardom is huge. Actors such as Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan, Aamir Khan, and few others have a huge fan base as the collection of their movies on the box office is enormous.
Considering their huge fan following, people have always followed Bollywood fashion. It might be new for some but fashion has been followed since its onset. Back in the days, Anarkali was a famous attire for women but it is still relevant in today’s times. Salman Khan’s hairstyle in Tere Naam was so popular that every local barber had a poster of the hairstyle. Millions in India have been influenced by the lifestyles of Bollywood actors. A large number of people tend to follow lifestyle news so that they could match up to their celebrities’ fashion sense. In a sense, cinema reflects reality. Many flaunt their dress if it is worn by someone famous on the screen. Often actors’ or actresses’ names are taken to give reference to their haircuts. This is the impact of Bollywood on the audience, thus we can say that Bollywood reel life has influenced people in real life.

Several Tollywood celebrities also have immense influence and fan following such as Allu Arjun, Ram Charan, Prabhas, and many others. In addition to Kamal Hasan, Ranna Daggubati, etc, many others have had an impact on Bollywood and have been appreciated in the industry.
