In this all-singing all-dancing hit show, acclaimed choreographers and sisters, Vaibhavi and Shruti Merchant present the spectacular new musical featuring the songs of Oscar® winner A.R. Rahman, composer of Slumdog Millionaire. The Bollywood musical opens on Tues 11 September, transporting the kaleidoscopic colours of India onto the Hippodrome’s stage direct from a sell-out London season.

Judith Greenburgh, Head of Business Development at the Hippodrome, said: “As a vibrant world-class theatre in Birmingham we want to bring more people and communities together through unforgettable performances and events. With diverse shows on our stages and partnerships, like this one, with local businesses we want to ensure we are reaching the audiences that make up this great city.

“We’re delighted to now be a member of the ABCC and to be working with them and Mahirs Experience to present our most colourful and vibrant large-scale hospitality event to date. We look forward to welcoming members from ABCC to this fantastic extravaganza.”
