Bollywood has been called one of the biggest passions of Indians. The industry is based in Mumbai, also called mayanagri- the enchanted land; conceivably for the reason that it holds within itself this wonder world called Bollywood. There is no other dream that has been dreamt by soooooo many, yet realized by so few..There are many who have carved fantastic success stories in Bollywood, but there are also those who stumbled and fell. Many others shined momentarily and then faded away, never to be seen again. And then, there are the invisible ones- the people behind the scenes, living unknown, unsung lives of anonymity. These are the people whose lives are far removed from the make-up and rouge lifestyles of the Bollywood superstars, but they are the part of the industry nevertheless. The ability to make others dream is extra- ordinary and unusual; Bollywood has done that for millions of us and perhaps, it is for this reason that it is and will remain an imperative part of our lives.

Have you seen the film Sankat City ? Mumbai is refered to city of dreams, city where many turn up for realising those dreams.Some do succeed and for the balance Illusion remains - hence Mayanagri.
