I don't expect the alleged heavy involvement of organized crime helped much, either.
That statistic isn't very helpful, because it's very clear from the skewed distribution of movie earnings that most movies will lose money. These losses are subsidized by profits from the few hugely profitable and successful blockusters. (At least, that's how it works in Hollywood.) Knowing how many movies broke even the prior year, and showing the ratio fell greatly, would be more insightful.
Since the Bollywood studios are probably just laundering money what's the difference.
There's the marriage of organized crime in Bollywood, the triads in Hong Kong, and the Yakuza in Japan...perhaps Puzo got his material not from Hollywood from the '50's but instead contemporary overseas film industry. Wonder what is the average life span for an actor in India?
can someone fill me in on the organized crime affiliation? i am very intrested -- i can tell my girlfriend because she loves those movies!
In Asia, most filmed entertainment, be it actual films or bootlegs of said films are basically tools for money laundering by organized crime
