MUMBAI: The only Bollywood theatre at Bollywood Parks Dubai, Rajmahal Theatre, has announced the release of a musical. Called Jaan-e-Jigar, the 120-minute extravaganza will be set in a broadway-style show with a unique twist.

The musical is a fantasy tale of two brothers named Jaan and Jigar, in a classic story of good vs evil. The story explores a larger than life world, full of magic, drama, music, dance, color and all things Bollywood. It is strung together with Bollywood hits, including an original soundtrack created for the show.

It is created in collaboration with Wizcraft International Private through which several actors, dancers, singers and acrobats were auditioned from across India to be a part of the musical. The versatile entertainers were hand-picked to showcase their talent to the millions of visitors who will attend the shows at the Rajmahal Theatre.

Bollywood Parks Dubai general manager Thomas Jellum showed his excitement and pride with the first broadway-style Bollywood musical to the Middle East, and the decision to showcase it at the Rajmahal Theatre.

The region’s first musical will have all the makings of a Bollywood blockbuster, with romance, drama, action, magic and brilliant performances with foot tapping music that promises to captivate audiences like never before.

Taking its inspiration from the beautiful palaces and intricate architectural designs in India, the Rajmahal Theatre, is a stunning 850-seater arena that will play the separately ticketed musical several times a week.

Jellum added, “As the region’s first resident show, we have partnered with the best in Bollywood show business, to ensure every element seen on stage embodies the cinematic experience. I am looking forward to see you all at the show very soon.” The ticket details will be announced soon.

Scheduled to open this year, Bollywood Parks Dubai is part of Dubai Parks and Resorts which will also feature Motiongate Dubai, a unique theme park showcasing some of Hollywood’s most beloved characters from DreamWorks Animation, Sony Pictures Studios and Lionsgate as well as the region’s first Legoland Park and a Legoland Water Park.

The entire destination will be connected by Riverland Dubai – a retail and dining destination at the heart of Dubai Parks and Resorts, and guests can stay at the Lapita Hotel, a Polynesian themed family hotel part of the Marriott Autograph Collection.

Expected to open in late 2019, Six Flags Dubai will be destination’s fourth theme park and the region’s first Six Flags theme park.
