Many travelers to India have heard of Bollywood, but how about Kollywood? This is moviemaking, South India style. Second only to Mumbai in terms of the number of Indian films produced, Chennai’s Kodambakkam district is the top destination for Kollywood movies. Read on to learn more.

What is Kollywood?
Kollywood is cinema produced in the Tamil language, and the hub of the Tamil film industry is the lively city of Chennai in the state of Tamil Nadu. It’s not just in India that Kollywood movies are popular—they’re actually well known across Southeast Asia.

Ways to Experience Kollywood
The best way to get to know the Tamil movie-making scene is on a guided behind-the-scenes tour of a Kodambakkam film set. On a Kollywood tour, you'll see Tamil movie-making in process with a tour guide as you visit the film studios and meet actors and technicians. At the end of the visit, you may see Tamil movie dance choreography in action or even learn a move or two yourself.
