Over 100 artists from Bollywood and rest of the country have put together a unique show called “Utsav Rishton Ka.” The hour-long programme will be unveiled on Makar Sankranti. The film-makers say the idea is to present the flavour and fragrance of India in all its rich variety and spiritual nuances to international tourists.

The show, supported by noted Bollywood music composer Uttam Singh, sound engineer Satish Gupta and choreographer Kamal Nath, will be staged at the Kalakriti Auditorium near Taj Mahal.

Captivating

A media preview of the show was held on Monday. The show not only acquainted the viewers with the rich Indian culture, through dances, Sufiana music and varied costumes, but also wowed and captivated them.

Oswal Group chairman Ashok Jain, who has produced the show and owns the auditorium, said that it had been “a patient 38-year-old journey” to develop these programmes.

“We want tourists to take home the flavour and fragrance of India in all its rich variety and spiritual nuances.”

The show opens with Rajasthani folk dance, followed by Punjabi Bhangra. The Malangs and Sufis’ performance transports viewers to an ecstatic world.

Critic Mahesh Dhakar told IANS: “The show fills a vital gap. Tourists, who are in a great hurry, will find the presentation memorable. Clearly one of the best and most appropriated choreographed show in our country.”
