Hindi is one of the official languages of India. It is the Sanskritized register of the Hindustani langue, with Indo-Aryan and Indo-European roots. It is spoken by millions of local Indians, but, has close resemblance with Urdu that is the native language of Pakistan. A large number of dialects of Hindi are famous throughout India, with about 180 million Hindi-speaking people. But, the main prominence of the language is probably through the Bollywood movies which use Hindi as the lingua franca.
