It’s a ideal location for Independent and Parallel cinema shooting too however movies whose Principal Photography and shooting is done in Himachal and neighbouring Lahaul Spiti or Leh Ladakh in J&K or Uttrakhand or even Nepal fall in aura of ” HIMollyWood “.
The term is often incorrectly used as asynecdoche to refer to just Himachali Cinema however, it is actually larger and includes all Himalayan Pahari cinema and other cinema with filming locations set in HIMollyWood which includes all Indian as well as foreign film industry.
HIMollyWood focuses on Pahari languages (from पहाड़ी(Devanagari) پہاڑی (Urdu) from pahar’mountain’) are a geographic group of Indo-Aryan languages spoken in the lower ranges of the Himalayas, from Nepal in the east, through the Indian states of Uttarakhand,Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir, to Kashmir. They are usually written in the Devanagari and Persio-Arabic scripts.
The name “HIMollyWood” just like “Bollywood” is a portmanteau derived from Himalayan Cinema centered in Himachal just like Bollywood derieved from Bombay (the former name for Mumbai) and Hollywood, the center of the American film industry. However, unlike Hollywood, Bollywood does not exist as a physical place.
The naming scheme for “Bollywood” was inspired by “Tollywood”, the name that was used to refer to the cinema of West Bengal. Dating back to 1932, “Tollywood” was the earliest Hollywood-inspired name, referring to the Bengali film industry based in Tollygunge,Calcutta, whose name is reminiscent of “Hollywood” and was the centre of the cinema of India at the time.It was this “chance juxtaposition of two pairs of rhyming syllables,” Holly and Tolly, that led to the portmanteau name “Tollywood” being coined. The name “Tollywood” went on to be used as a nickname for the Bengali film industry by the popular Kolkata-based Junior Statesmanyouth magazine, establishing a precedent for other film industries to use similar-sounding names, eventually leading to the term “Bollywood” being coined.However, more popularly, Tollywood is now used to refer to the Telugu Film Industry in Telangana &Andhra Pradesh. The term “Bollywood” itself has origins in the 1970s, when India overtook America as the world’s largest film producer. The term HIMollyWood has been credited to SunDeep Bhardwaj a World Traveller who after travelling to 70+Countries 555+ Destinations Nearby 150+International Airports Across 6 Continents in a Decade long journey set the center of Himalayan Cinema and comes the term ” HIMollyWood “.

Main article: Western Pahari
There are a dozen Western Pahari languages, of which Dogri is the best known. Though traditionally considered Pahari, and often Hindi or Punjabi, the Western Pahari languages are more closely related to each other than to other Indo-Aryan languages. 17 to 20% of Jammu and Kashmir speak Pahari languages.
The mother tongues of most “hill tribes” of higher elevations are Tibeto-Burman. Nepali is mainly differentiated from Central Pahari through its being affected, both in grammar and vocabulary, by Tibeto-Burman idioms. The speakers of Central and Western Pahari have not been brought into close association with Tibeto-Burmans, and their language is therefore purely Indo-Aryan
