Bollywood comes to Dublin

I never imagined I would be posting about Bollywood dancing on Metblogs Dublin :) but here I am, get your dancing shoes on Dubliners for some Bollywood style dancing.

If you read The Sunday Times today, you would already know what I am talking about, on third page, there is a call for people to star in a small budget bollywood style movie to be shot by David O’Sullivan (of Nun More Deadly) and for the final (or not) scene (remember like in Slumdog Millionaire), Dubliner’s have been invited to star in the dance scene.

Bollywood (producing more than 1000 movies per year) shoots most (or many) of their dance numbers in foreign locations like London, Switzerland, Paris, NY etc etc. And Ireland is hoping to get a share of the pie (in 2006, the Taoiseach sent a high profile delegation to get some of that business but not very successful in attracting yet). And now, David has taken the task and to show that Ireland IS suited for Bollywood (with beautiful locations on west, wicklow, etc..), by shooting a short movie with singing n dancing and final dance scene number, written by Deco and Brez from Republic of Loose band.

If you want to be part of it, have a look at this video and rehearse the dance routine and send your details (name, phone no., playing age, dance ability) to dublinbollywood@gmail.com. Sounds lotsa fun and the dance routine seems quite interesting and not that tough. Get your bollywood shows on :) and see you there.

Rough Song translation: “Look by Look, I gave you my heart, Dhak Dhak ‘heart beats’, and I am in love now, ..” repeats n repeats.

And finally I just wanted to share the video of the dance routine of the picture above from the movie Devdas (first bollywood movie to premiered at Festival de Cannes) (the photo on Sunday Times is from same movie).
