Accompanied by a 10-member group of Bollywood stars, the visitors lit up Lautoka's Girmit Centre on Monday night with a three-hour show starring idols like singer Sandeep Ubale.

Also part of the entourage were movie star and singer Rama Kulkarni and Palavi Bapat.

The team from Sahyadri Hospital is screening patients with heart, and neurological problems.

Their visit was organised by the Health and Local Government ministries and in collaboration with the Indian Cultural Centre and the High Commission of India.

Launching the event. Local Government minister Colonel Samuela Saumatua said they were determined to bring services to the people.

"The services you have received would normally require patients to go abroad for weeks, if not months," he said.

"This musical night is another opportunity to learn more about Sahyadri Hospitals but in a relaxed and musical environment — free of charge."

He said the night was special as the health program was promoted through music.
