Mumbai, formerly Bombay, is regarded as India's most westernized city. Founded on the coast of the Arabian Sea by the Portuguese, it has taken just 500 years for this aboriginal fishing settlement to become a sprawling city of thirteen million people. The city generates 35 percent of India's GNP as its port handles half of the country's foreign trade. As the heart of Indian cinema, Mumbai's movie industry is the largest in the world. In addition to Bollywood, the city maintains a thriving theatrical tradition in Marathi, Hindi, Urdu and other regional languages.
