Why Rio Olympics heard Bollywood music?
Indian music, especially Bollywood music, is highly popular among other nationalities for its dance beats that make it easier to perform. Bollywood style dancing is considered to be highly enjoyable in the West.
Bollywood music scaled new heights after AR Rahman’s spectacular win at the Oscars in the year 2009 for the track ‘Jai Ho.’
In short, India may not have got any medals so far in the Rio Olympics, but it indeed is present thanks to the Mexicans!
