The trend for Bollywood movies from India-a cross between romantic comedies and musicals-came to Poland several years ago. In Warsaw Bollywood fans went to film marathons, saw Bharati, an Indian musical extravaganza, and an Indian fashion show.

The next treat for Bollywood fans will be a concert by the Bollywood Pandits at 7 p.m. on Nov. 8 in the Palladium Club at 9 Złota St., in Warsaw. The Bollywood Pandits are known for their songs on the soundtracks of films starring famous Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan.

After the concert, at 10 p.m. a Bollywood DJ will play Bollywood, "Kollywood", "Tollywood" and Punjabi music at a party the organizers say is expected to continue until dawn. Professional Bollywood dancers will also perform.

Tickets are available at www.ticketonline.pl, in Empik stores and in the Palladium Club on the day of the concert. Ticket prices are as follows. Early ticket purchase: zl.60 for standing room purchased in person; zl.70 for standing room purchased over the internet; zl.100 for a reservation, available only over the Internet. On the day: zl.100 for standing room; zl.140 for a reservation, if still available.

The organizers have laid on special "Bolly-buses" to transport people from outside of Warsaw to the concert. The buses, each decorated in Bollywood style, will depart from Katowice, Łódź, Cracow, Poznań, Wrocław, Gdańsk, Toruń, Lublin, Szczecin, Chorzów and Sosnowiec. During the journey passengers will be able to watch Bollywood movies, listen to Indian music and even try some Indian food delicacies. For more information, call 880 261 360 or write to saikat.basu@basugroup.eu

The event organizers are Bollywood Entertainment S.C., Shi Events and Promote.biz. The Bollywood Pandits concert marks the beginning of a forthcoming series of Bollywood-themed events.
