Set against the backdrop of London, in preparing for the 2012 Olympics, Miss Bollywood follows the story of 'Maya' performed by Shilpa Shetty.

Maya, a young classically trained choreographer finds herself thrust into the limelight where she must sink or swim.

Her tribulations include the unwanted attentions of a famous but predatory choreographer and a jealous diva.

Miss Bollywood is a blend of riveting dance sequences showcasing a combination of diverse dance forms taken from the east and west of India.

These dance sequences are absorbed and transformed into the phenomenon known as Bollywood dance, with Shilpa Shetty re-capturing on stage some of the Bollywood film industry's greatest hits from the past 40 years.

The show's producer Farhath Hussain is extremely proud of his involvement with this stage spectacle.

He commented:"I am thrilled at the end result of a spectacular theatrical project that has involved an unlimited abundance of passion, talent and commitment from all of those involved.

"It is a highly innovative and original piece of theatre that will span the appeal of a huge cross-section of theatregoers, combining as it does, all of the winning ingredients of the classic Bollywood film formula - a perfect concept to bring to the musical stage."

Miss Bollywood also takes a look at the cultural divide between characters with Asian heritage but who consider themselves totally British and those who are from India in search of fame and fortune in multi-cultural Britain.
