The image is bright and colourful. Within a pink circle lit up around the outside with dressing room lights are a man and a woman, laughing together as he plays the tambourine and she dances. Red, pink, orange and yellow light beams from the circle they're in and the title 'Bombay Superstar: A retro Bollywood musical by Samir Bhamra' sits below it in white. The 'a' in the word 'superstar' is replaced by a star shape.

Meet Laila, a blooming starlet, and Sikandar, a dashing – but off-limits – Bollywood hero. They star together in blockbuster musicals, where heroes wear their hearts on their sleeves and rescue beautiful damsels from the clutches of villains on the mean streets of Bombay. But as their secret passion grows, the intensity of their emotions threatens to burn everything around them. Will there be a happily ever after for the star-crossed lovers?

Bringing the riot of colour, music, romance and melodrama from the Bollywood big screen flamboyantly to life on stage, ‘Bombay Superstar’ is a brand-new musical based on the films and songs of Bollywood icons like Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha, set to a sizzling soundtrack of iconic Bollywood songs from the 70s and 80s.
