India is a multicultural nation. We anticipate that the Bollywood movie business, one of the finest forms of entertainment, will reflect its diversity. However, they inevitably stereotype characters on film depending on their occupation or race.

Here is a list of some of the things that every Bollywood movie has.
The main character of the movie nearly invariably hails from one of the tiny towns in Lucknow or Kanpur.
There are so many movies on this list, including Tanu Weds Manu and Bala, Jolly LLB, Ishaqzaade, Pati Patni Aur Woh, and Pagglait. What is Bollywood’s infatuation with these cities?
Punjabis predominate among NRIs in Bollywood films, right?
All of these movies—Monsoon Wedding, Bend It Like Beckham, or Namaste London—promote the notion that NRIs only speak Punjabi, dance Bhangra, and use dhols to bash people. Oh, and they reside in Canada or the UK.
In Bollywood films, each constable’s name goes by the moniker “Tambe” or “Shinde.”
Choose any random Bollywood film, and you’ll see a police officer with the last name “Shinde.”

the lawyers in Bollywood Movies that wins in court are mostly unsuccessful lawyers.
There are several names on the list: Aitraaz, Jolly LLB, OMG, Sections 375 and 420, Jazbaa, and Damini. Oh, and did you notice that the majority of the lawyers in these movies that wins in court are unsuccessful lawyers.
Daughters of extremely wealthy businessmen will have zero life goals
For instance, Shanaya Singhania (Alia Bhatt), the daughter of a wealthy stepfather, falls in love with Abhimanyu (Sidharth Malhotra), an orphan and scholarship student, in the Bollywood movie Student Of The Year.
It will always be a Marathi person who cleans the house in Bollywood Movies
She usually ends her statements with “Are Deva” and wears nauwari sarees.
Despite the fact that some of these may look amusing, they pose certain problems. It’s time to update these depictions and inject some freshness into Bollywood movies, where a cop isn’t always Shinde and a student isn’t always in class.
