Actress Shilpa Shetty is finalizing the nitty-gritty's of her Broadway musical MISS BOLLYWOOD which will be along the lines of 'Moulin Rouge' and Andrew Lloyd Weber's 'Bombay Dreams'.

"From the last couple of months, Shilpa's basic aim is to showcase Bollywood and Indian culture in the West," informed her spokesperson Dale Bhagwagar. He further 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."

"Her role requires lots of dancing and acting, which is something she loves doing anyway," remarked her spokesperson Dale Bhagwagar.

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. The actress has already started rehearsals for the shows.

Starting with shows in Germany for the first three months, the musical will travel to UK and later 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.
