Lollywood

Lollywood (inPunjabi,Urdu: لالی وُڈlâli vuḍ) is the oldest film industry of Pakistani cinema, based in Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan.[1] Since 1929, Lahore has been the center of Pakistani cinema, producing films in both the Punjabi and Urdu languages. Since 2007, however, Karachi has largely overtaken Lahore in Urdu film productions. The word "Lollywood" was coined in the summer of 1989 in Glamour magazine, published from Karachi, by gossip columnist Saleem Nasir.
