The glamour and glitter that is Bollywood returns to Australia following its worldwide success and rave reviews. The Merchants of Bollywood features a cast of more than 30 performers direct from Film City Mumbai – the home of Bollywood cinema.

A theatrical dance spectacular, the show charts the enchanting history of the world’s largest and most prolific film industry and is a touching tribute to the Bollywood greats of yesterday and the box office hits of today.

A fictional story, yet based on real life, The Merchants of Bollywood will demonstrate the workings of cinema and the part it plays in the heart and soul of Indian society in an extraordinary evening of music and dance at the heart of which lies a heartfelt story of a young girl, her grandfather and their love of dance.

Capturing the essence of India with its rich and diverse culture The Merchants of Bollywood is acclaimed by patrons and reviews alike.

“★★★★ stars … their energy is electrifying, their movements suffused with a rush of joy and yet ruthlessly precise and the frenetic flow of onstage activity is almost non-stop. It's a high octane pleasure!” The Times, London
“Taut and buff bodies glisten … dazzle and sparkle ... the choreography and visual appeal is as slick and sexy as any MTV promo.” The London Metro
“Uplifting show … a real dazzler.”  The Birmingham Post
