WET weather conditions failed to dampen the spirits of about 5000 people who gathered at Labasa's Subrail Park on Sunday night to watch the show of one of India's most popular TV serial actresses, Suhasi Dhami.

The Indian actress, known to many Fijians through her role as Abha Prasad on the hit TV show Yahan Main Ghar Ghar Kheli, was greeted with cheers by the enthusiastic crowd who braved the rain to witness her performance.

Apart from just performing contemporary Indian dances, she performed Pacific Island dances and also briefly talked about the TV show.

Along with Dhami was Bollywood comedian Johnny Lever's brother, Jimmy Moses who also kept the crowd roaring with his jokes and entertainment.

Moses told this newspaper that this was by far, the biggest crowd they had ever come across during their show here in Fiji.

"The people are just so friendly and the support is overwhelming," Moses said.

"There is a big crowd here in Labasa and we really can't express how happy we are to be performing in front of a jam-packed park."

The Abha concert is scheduled to take place at Prince Charles Park in Nadi on Thursday before it moves to Lautoka on Friday, Ba on Saturday and in Suva on Sunday.
