Fiji born rising Bollywood playback singer Sumeet Tappoo and his 15 member troupe from India promises to take the country by storm through their performances in Suva, Lautoka and Nadi.

Mumbai based Tappoo who has performed extensively in countries around the world including USA, Canada, South Africa, UK, Malaysia, Mauritius, Australia, New Zealand, India and Fiji said the three concerts will give the local audience a unique blend of Bollywood entertainment.

"The show will be a complete entertainment package for all members of the family as its content will be totally Bollywood and my troupe will surely be out to rock the audience," he said.

"This will be a very different show for me as well as I have previously sung semi-classical and religious songs in my shows here but this time around it will completely be Bollywood ranging from the golden hits of Mohammed Rafi, Kishore Da and Mukesh to today's hits of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Mohit Chauhan, Shaan, Atif Aslam and Sonu Nigam."

"We have the beautiful Jasmine Kapadia who will sing the golden hits of Lata Mangeshkar as well as some modern day hits and accompany me in a couple of duets."

"Well known Bollywood comedian Dipoo Srivastava will surely liven up the shows with his stand up comedy. He is one of the established comedians in India and brings with him a lot of experience."

"The nine member orchestra and the four amazing dancers who have performed in many countries with artists like Lara Dutta, Diya Mirza, Asha Bhonsle, Daler Mehndi, Alka Yagnik, Kumar Sanu, Shreya Ghosal will add more glamour to the concerts and will awe the crowd," Tappoo added.

Tappoo has held more than 400 concerts and the highlight of his career was a live joint performance with Bollywood legends Hariharan, Shankar Mahadevan and Suresh Wadikar in India.

The first of the three "Celebration of Bollywood, An evening of love, romance and music" shows gets underway this Friday at the FMF National Gymnasium in Suva.

The second and third shows will be held in Lautoka and Nadi respectively.
