Did you know?

Mumbai is the home of Bollywood, and there are a handful of tours that allow you to go inside the expansive Film City, which is otherwise not accessible to the public: Bollywood Tours and Bollywood Tourism and Mumbai Film City Tours  to name but a few.

Many of the tours include a Hollywood-esque drive-by of the Bollywood stars’ homes.

And, according to various sources, if you want to become an extra in a Bollywood movie all you need to do is hang around Leopold’s Cafe in the Colaba neighbourhood dressed nicely and a scout will eventually tap you on the shoulder.
