According to the officials, the musical will have all the makings of a Bollywood blockbuster, with romance, drama, action, magic and brilliant performances with foot-tapping music that promises to captivate audiences like never before.
In collaboration with Wizcraft International Private Limited, hundreds of actors, dancers, singers and acrobats were auditioned from across India to be a part of the musical.
Taking its inspiration from the beautiful palaces and intricate architectural designs in India, the Rajmahal Theatre is a 850-seater arena that will play the separately ticketed musical several times a week.
“As the region’s first resident show, we have partnered with the best in Bollywood show business, to ensure every element seen on stage embodies the cinematic experience,” Jellum added.
