The Australia-based Bollywood event company, Inventive Events, is on a roll. Their latest roadshow featuring stars Tushaar Kapoor, Zarine Khan and Ali Asgar will hit Suva on Friday night at the Vodafone Arena and then the following night at Princes Charles Park in Nadi. Both shows start at 7.30pm.

The Bula Desi Bollywood shows are the real thing. Previous outfits that tried to bring in Bollywood stars were fly-by-night operations that charged an astronomical $50 minimum for shows. No wonder than that previous promoters locked themselves into their Suva hotel rooms when outraged members of the public demanded their money back. Government intervention along with the Fiji Commerce Commission has cleaned up the scene so to speak.

 

Australia events

Inventive Events are no small players. In August last year, they promoted Bollywood superstar Govinda, for a series of performances in Australia. Most importantly, they have involved local stakeholders like the Masti Dance and Entertainment Group. This means that the Masti Group, under the leadership of Amit Ashwin Chand, have been given the chance to develop top local entertainers like LIvyanna Valentine, Natasha Datt, Sachin Kumar, Rohitix Prasad, Pauline Aradhna, Shushant Prasad, Merlyn Dayal, Ameet Kumar, Shivanjini Kumar, Shalvin Prakash, Adiel Pranay, Silu Tekirawa Makenzie, Hannon Kwasing and Bembe Terei.

Inventive Events and the Masti Group are paving the way for the growth of the local entertainment industry. The Masti Group certainly reflect the new Fiji, with their dance routines now evolving into fusion presentations exploring the richness of Polynesian, Melanesian and Micronesian themes besides their usual Bollywood numbers.

Most of the Masti performers hold down regular jobs as they pursue their dreams of full-time work in the entertainment industry. With more shows and help from Inventive Events that dream could become a reality sooner rather than later.
