If it is one genre in which Bollywood always seems to innovate and better itself, it has to be the comedy genre. Over the years, we have seen some really good comedy films shattering records and going on to become one of the highest bollywood grossers of all time. Even if it is an out and out action entertainer, chances are it will have the elements of comedy associated with it as Indian audiences love to laugh in the theatres.
There has been a long streak of bollywood comedy films that have entertained us for a long time and in a country, like India you don't have to look far for a comedy concept and people love to spend money on mindless entertainers as we have seen the case with films like Golmaal & Housefull series. There are many memorable characters in these films that stay with us for a long time and we remember these films for these iconic characters.
