The Indian film industry is the 2nd largest in the world, with more than 1,000 films produced every year in more than 20 languages, and 3.3 billion tickets sold annually. The business of the industry is soaring with the advantage of being recession proof. Indian Film Industry's local theatrical revenues are projected to grow 10.6% to Rs 7,350 crore in 2012-13 from Rs 6,880 crore in 2011-12. Hindi Film Industry's success ratio has gone up from 15 per cent in 2010 to 25 percent in the current year. Indian Film Industry revenues are going up due to increase in number of multiplexes, digitalization of screens and increase in average ticket prices, satellite, music and new media rights.
