Atasa Moceituba And Kajal Hindocha
Thursday, July 24, 2014

WITH the mother of all festivals drawing closer, the event's organisers and members of the public can look forward to a number of surprises — all in a bid to make this year's fete an unforgettable experience.

First-timer to the festival Indiana Bollywood will be in the country to entertain and showcase its performances to the crowd.

Indian High Commission cultural centre director Kishan Kanojia said the group was expected to bring a combination of international music with them.

He said apart from graceful and well-choreographed dances, they would also incorporate live singing by professional playback singers from Indian cinema and television.

"They have performed globally in places like USA, Dubai, London and Kenya and have worked with big names in the Bollywood industry such as Salman Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Micky Narula to name a few," Mr Kanojia said.

Hibiscus Events Group chairman Hirdesh Prasad said the group would arrive next month.

He said the group would perform at the Bollywood night during the Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus Festival.

"People can look forward to the Bollywood dancing and classic dance. We are bringing India to Fiji. This is something new that the people of Fiji might want to see and witness," he said.

The 12-member group from Mumbai will also perform with local dance groups.
