Amazon-owned IMDb announced Thursday it is adding an "India Spotlight" to its website. The new section features several recently released Bollywood titles and also has news articles and other updates from India’s movie industry.
"Now, in addition to being your authoritative destination for information on international movies and TV shows, you can also rely on IMDb as the entertainment destination that will keep you up to date on Indian movies and celebrities," IMDb Founder and CEO Col Needham said in an email sent to many IMDb users in India Thursday.
The launch of India Spotlight comes a day after Amazon announced Prime Video service availability in the country.
India Spotlight also has a trending section to help movie nerds keep a track of the titles other fellow Indians are showing interest in. In addition to featuring Hindi movies and TV shows, the site also lists movies in Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu, and Bengali languages.
Founded in 1990, IMDb has become an authoritative place for movie goers. It has over four million movies, TV shows and different episodes listed on the website. The site also offers snippets and other trivia related to those titles. It also helps people discover TV shows and movies based on their preferences.
IMDb rakes in over 600 million page views every month, according to web analytics firm SimilarWeb. And it ranks 57th most popular site worldwide on Amazon-owned web traffic data firm Alexa.
