Greenlit: Bollywood Live, BBC3

Bollywood Live (1 x 60′) – Romance, music, intrigue and drama are set to hit the city of Bradford, UK, this summer as the story of  Bizet’s Carmen is retold in a contemporary Bollywood style

As well as special arrangements of some of Bizet’s best-loved themes from the opera, there will be a new original score by Kuljit Bhamra and a selection of pop songs, Bollywood movie classics, and Bhangra hits. Kuljit Bhamra is one of the UK’s Bhangra pioneers: his projects have included working with Andrew Lloyd Webber on the West End Musical Bombay Dreams and as the Indian Music Consultant for the stage adaptation of The Far Pavilions.
