MUMBAI, India (AP) — Indian actress Shilpa Shetty will be giving Britain and Germany a taste of Bollywood when she takes a new musical stage show there later this year.
Strangely enough that’s also the plot of “Miss Bollywood.”
“It is the story of a girl who gives the world a taste of India through her Bollywood songs and dances,” Shetty told the Times of India newspaper in an interview published Friday.
The musical will open in London’s West End, and will be followed with some 60 performances in Germany.
Shetty, a well known actress in India who made international headlines after winning the British reality show “Celebrity Big Brother” amid allegations of racism against her, denied that the musical was about her life.
