ROANOKE, Va. -

One Roanoke woman is on a mission to make Bollywood entertainment accessible to those here.

Bollywood is the Indian equivalent to our Hollywood movie industry. It features blockbuster style movies and combines dance, action and the biggest movie stars in India.

In recent years, Vickie Holt started Vickie's Bollywood Broadcast and is excited that the Roanoke community is enjoying Indian films.

She says, what the American film industry lacks, Bollywood movies are making up for!

"They survived on the world stage for all of those decades on the strength of story, writing, acting and directing and they haven't lost that," said Holt.

Several film screenings are heading to the area and can be seen at various theaters in the area. Holt is also organizing an Indian dance event next month.
