5 Bollywood Movies to Watch on Netflix

I really enjoy Bollywood movies. They’ve been a favourite of mine since I was a kid. The only problem I have now is that I never get out to the theatre to watch them. That means, I don’t actually get to see any of the new Bollywood movies.

However,  I have noticed that Netflix has added a lot of new movies in it’s foreign section and a lot of them are from Bollywood so I’m pretty excited about that! I don’t even have to leave my couch to watch them.
