Mumbai (Agencies): He is the product of Bollywood but Salman Khan hates it. Not the industry, but the word.

The world over Mumbai film industry is known as Bollywood but Khan says the name is "disgusting".

"Hate this name, Bollywood. Koi naam hai kya? Disgusting," Khan tweeted on Wednesday.

The word 'Bollywood' is used for the Hindi-language film industry based in Mumbai and is often incorrectly used to refer to the whole of Indian cinema.

Khan joined the rank of Amitabh Bachchan who has also said, time and again, that the word Bollywood should not be used for the industry as a whole.
