Throughout the history of TV and film entertainment we have seen our fair share of productions both from Hollywood for a worldwide audience and from Bollywood, which was more focused on an Indian audience. When it comes to comparing the two, they’re very similar in terms of what they are all in all, only one is a bit more ethnicity based then the other, and there’s also a big difference in money, which overall, affects the lifestyle of one who takes part in them.

Over the years we have seen a number of Bollywood actors who somehow ended up in global Hollywood productions, either because there was a specific need for an Indian actor on an American set, or simply because an Indian actor or actress wanted a taste of the elevated fame and glory that the American Hollywood lifestyle had to offer. One can even get a taste of the glitz and glamour of Holly and Bollywood through the best betting sites in India. Here’s a short list of some of the most successful actors who made it from Bollywood to Hollywood in style!
