Who controls the Hindi movie business in UK?

UK Box office figures for the years 2004 and 2005

UK Box office figures for the years 2004 and 2005

Some data collected during my research. This table was generated using data furnished by UK Film Council and it tells you a lot about how much Indian film companies actually make, unless I am missing out something major over here. Few points:

a) In 2004 Hindi films made £4.3 million and in 2005 £3.1 million.

b) these figures can’t be compared with the UK box office figures of Hollywood films.

c) The Indian media narrative of Indian films in UK tends to be a tad overenthusiastic — something akin to an Indian film invasion, which is not the case.

More on this next time.
