Bahujanwood or Bahujan cinema is a film movement in Indian cinema that is based on Bahujan ideology that encourages films on stories of marginalized sections of Indian society by their own filmmakers and actors.[1][2] Bahujanwood was born in retaliation to allegedly Caste biased[3][4][5] and brahminical[6][7] Indian cinema that shy aways from telling stories of Dalits (Scheduled castes),[8] Adivasis[9][10] (Scheduled tribes) and OBCs.[11][12][13] Dalits have been developing and asserting their own space in cinema after the rise of Bahujan conscience.[14]
