Bollywood follows the ‘star’ system. The lead star in a film often receives as much as 40% of the budget (average US $2 million) for the formula/mainstream film. Stars are in such high demand that they're working on an average of 4 films a year. Since natural location shooting is impractical in India, the concept of the ‘film city’ has emerged and there are now film cities in the three major film subindustrial hubs in Mumbai, Chennai and Hyderabad.

The financial infrastructure for Indian cinema is customized to the traditional differentiation between art and commercial cinema. ‘Commercial’ cinema claims to be for the ‘masses’ and follows the generic formula with a good deal of ‘westernization’ element. ‘Art’ films usually deal with a wide range of subjects but many are in general explorations of complex human circumstances and relationships within an Indian setting. More than 95% of film financing goes towards ‘commercial cinema’ The National Film Development Corporation was set up in to counter this trend and promote “excellence in cinema”.

An estimated 6 million people earn their livelihood from the entertainment industry – Film and TV Unionization of the film industry is a state subject.

Releasing the film music, or music videos, before the actual release of the film can also be considered a form of advertising. A popular tune is believed to help pull audiences into the theaters.
