Bollywood extravaganza performed at India by Nile fest
Cairo: A Bollywood musical extravaganza is being presented in Egypt as part of the third edition of the ‘India by the Nile’ festival.
“No Indian festival is complete without a Bollywood song and dance performance. Bollywood Love Story last year was an instant hit and received great reviews. This year we are bringing ‘Bollywood Musical – A Tale of Love, Passion and Revenge’ themed on Amitabh Bachchan’s most important roles,” said the Ambassador of India to Egypt, Navdeep Suri.
‘India by Nile’ is the largest foreign cultural festival in Egypt since the 25 January Revolution that topped former president Hosni Mubarak.
The musical performed in Cairo at the Opera House from 1-2 April and will be staged tonight before travelling to Alexandria on April 6-8.
“Bollywood Extravaganza” features a love story that is set against the backdrop of the colorful world of Bollywood and with the help of more than 35 dancers.
Bachchan, 72, inaugurated the festival last Monday during his visit to Egypt.
