Hyderabad is the homeland of Tollywood, the Telugu movie industry. Apart from being a popular entertainment source and India's largest film producer as measured by the number of films made every year (followed by Bollywood), Tollywood also provides livelihood to thousands of its citizens and contributes a large amount of revenue to the local government. Previously, many Telugu films were produced in Madras. However, improvements in Hyderabad's infrastructure and initiatives such as establishing studios like Ramoji Film City (cited by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's largest film studio), Saradhi Studios, Annapurna Studios, Ramanaidu Studios, Ramakrishna Studios and Padmalaya Studios have changed the situation. Not only Telugu films, but films from Bollywood are made in Hyderabad.
