Since you are born and brought up Mumbai, the home of Bollywood, you are constantly surrounded by Bollywood buffs, songs and movies and you yourself love it too. You will always love watching Bollywood movies even if they aren’t that great at times because it’s simply entertaining.

With such a wide range of shopping options, be it the fashion street, hill road etc., or the big posh malls, you have everything you want. Fashion loves the city and its style and surrounded by the fashion and media industry you are sure to develop a pretty good fashion sense.
