    do i need article here?

    He has_goodwill in the Bollywood, the most vibrant (artistic) brush to paint success with precision.

    Do I need artcle before goodwill, I think it's uncountable noun hence we do not need article...

    Kindly suggest

    You are right about goodwill. But why 'the' before 'Bollywood'?
