Bollywood Trade News Network
Actress Shilpa Shetty is finalizing the nitty-gritty's of her Broadway musical which will be along the lines of 'Moulin Rouge' and Andrew Lloyd Weber's 'Bombay Dreams'.
"Shilpa has begun the ground work on the musical. Her role requires lots of dancing and acting, which is something she loves doing anyway," remarked her spokesperson Dale Bhagwagar.
"From the last couple of months, Shilpa's basic aim is to showcase Bollywood and Indian culture in the West," he added. "Even for the musical, her costumes will be designed by popular Indian designer Neeta Lulla and will represent the ethics and culture of India."
Bhagwagar further informed that renowned Indian choreographer Ganesh Hegde would set the steps for the musical, while Shilpa would focus on her performance, leaving the singing to professionals.
Starting with shows in the UK for the first three months, the musical could travel to other parts of the world including the US and Australia.
"After 'Big Brother', Shilpa was constantly under media glare with all her moves being marked. She was looking at expanding her horizons by going to another level. This musical gives her a chance to do something she's always wanted to," added Bhagwagar.
