I expect at least NRIs (and the others from the region) will start appreciating blu-ray PQ with the purchase of large HDTVs. Pirated dvds look awful on plasma/lcds.
The Bollywood studios should be proactive and provide content to get the ball rolling.
Bollywood has done very well on blu-ray PQ - and expect this trend will continue. Blu-ray is an excellent tool to combat piracy and should be used to tap into the current pirated-dvd market which is worth millions of dollars.
