Bollywood Parks Dubai to thrill visitors with ‘Jaan-e-Jigar’ musical
Bollywood™ Parks Dubai, part of Dubai Parks and Resorts, the largest integrated theme park destination in the region, has revealed the much-anticipated name of its new dedicated musical – Jaan-e-Jigar.
In what can only be described as a thrilling 120-minute extravaganza, performed at the park’s majestic Rajmahal Theatre, Jaan-e-Jigar will tell the tale of two brothers named Jaan and Jigar, in a classic story of good versus evil.
This fantasy tale will be strung together with Bollywood hits, including an original soundtrack created specifically for the Broadway-style show.
The story explores a larger-than-life world, full of magic, drama, music, dance, colour and all things ‘Bollywood.’
The region’s first Broadway-style Bollywood 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.
Thomas Jellum, general manager of Bollywood Parks™ Dubai said: “We are very proud to bring the first Broadway-style Bollywood musical to the Middle East, and what better place to showcase it other than our star attraction – the Rajmahal Theatre. Our guests are sure to be entertained.”
In collaboration with Wizcraft International Private Limited, hundreds of actors, dancers, singers and acrobats were auditioned from across India to be a part of the musical. Only the best entertainers were hand-picked to showcase their talent to the millions of visitors who will attend the shows at the Rajmahal Theatre.
Taking its inspiration from the beautiful palaces and intricate architectural designs in India, the Rajmahal Theatre, Bollywood Parks™ Dubai’s jewel, 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.”
Bollywood Parks™ Dubai, along with LEGOLAND® Water Park and the Lapita™ Hotel will open on 15 November followed by MOTIONGATE™ Dubai on 16 December.
Dubai Parks and Resorts has already opened the doors to the region’s first LEGOLAND® Dubai theme park and Riverland™ Dubai, the multi-themed dining and retail destination.
Both opened to the public on Monday October 31.
