PARTICIPANTS of a local talent show will get an opportunity to develop their craft and exposure through a production by prolific Bollywood actor Mithun Chakraborty.

Also an accomplished dancer, writer and film producer, the grandmaster of the Dance India Dance show is scheduled to travel to Fiji towards the end of this year for a film project with Ganesha Productions, creators of Fiji's Dancing Superstar.

Ganesha Productions director Sandeep Narayan said this was fostered at a recent trip to India and was a double achievement during discussions with Chakraborty's television network.

"We had collaborated with the IDS Star of India network for our winners from Season 2 to have the chance to compete in the television show in India," he said.

"While we were discussing with Mr Chakraborty to have the dance finale, he mentioned the production he was doing and we mentioned what Fiji offered in terms of production."

He said the Bollywood star's production would be for his son and will be shot on location around the country, using 40 per cent of local talent.
