Written by on January 8th, 2010

Bollywood is a treasure trove of controversies, mindless action, soulful stories, touching performances, too hard to handle emotions, amazing music and many fulfilled dreams and needless to mention, unlimited success.

Top Scandals of 2009

Written by on January 4th, 2010

No other film industry does scandal quite like Bollywood.

The guys on the Bollywood Spice team were stunned by the revelation that none of them were included in the list when the girls produced their Bollywood’s fifteen hottest men article – and also amazed that it didn’t include the great Aamir Khan – but I guess we admire him for different reasons.
