ETC Business Head Anurag Bedi, "Bollywood is an industry. Every Friday its
movies are released and the cine-goers pass verdict whether they buy it or not.
And as is common to any other industry, Bollywood should also be judged accordingly.
in India, all those who represent the industry, actors, musicians, directors,
et al, have only been judged on creative parameters. No one had thought of evaluating
them on how much business they had generated!
identified this opportunity in the evaluation system, we decided to explore it.
Thus was born the concept of ETC Bollywood Business Awards 2010. Such an evaluation
will bring forward the workings of Bollywood as an industry. Behind the shine
of glamour and creativity lies a lot of hard work, technical wizardry, marketing
and strategic initiatives. Movie making is an art, getting audiences to pay to
watch it and make it a hit is commerce. It is our belief that the viewers should
appreciate both these facets of Bollywood."
