Radio Tarana is organising ‘Festival of India’ on August 20, 2016 at Vodafone Events Centre in Manukau.

The event, beginning at midday, will celebrate 70th Independence Day of India and afford Hindi film enthusiasts and fans an opportunity to meet Tusshar Kapoor, a popular actor and son of ‘Ever-Green Hero’ Jeetendra.

The Festival of India will culminate in the evening with a grand fireworks display.

Free for All

Like yesteryears, the forthcoming Festival will include entertainment, cultural shows and other events, while a number of stalls dealing in food, arts and crafts and other items will be an added attraction.

Radio Tarana Managing Director Robert Khan said that song and dance sequences culled from Hindi films will be performed by the students of a local dance school.

“These performances, including folk dances such as the Bhangra, will be dedicated to Tusshar. Who knows, he may even join in the music and dance numbers of ‘Golmaal’ and ‘Dirty Picture.’ The presence of ‘Bombay Magic’ live band will enhance entertainment value,” he said.

Patriot undertone

Audiences have been treated to a high standard of performances; especially by children who exemplify the wonderful local talent in Auckland. This event presents a good platform for these talented individuals and groups to showcase their ability to a large number of people.

Radio Tarana has made ‘Festival of India’ more exciting by bringing Hindi film stars to be a part of these celebrations. Govinda arrived on our shores, and added glamour to Independence Day celebrations held at Logan Campbell Centre on August 16, 2015.

Suniel Shetty was the star attraction at a similar Festival held on September 20, 2015 at Vodafone Events Centre, Manukau.

About Tusshar

Thirty-Nine-Year-old Tusshar, is the youngest child of the Jeetendra family.

His sister Ekta is producer and director of the Indian Television industry. Her ‘Balaji Films’ has given a number of successful soap operas on Hindi television channels.

Tusshar is an alumnus of the Bombay Scottish School and University of Michigan. He assisted filmmaker David Dhawan before making his debut in the romantic hit, ‘Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai’ (2001). Co-starring Kareena Kapoor, this Satish Kaushik directed musical gave Tusshar a good launch pad in Hindi cinema.

He won a Filmfare trophy for convincing portrayal of the boy-next-door trying to find his way through life.

Subsequent years showed Tusshar as a versatile actor convincingly juggling between different genres of cinema.

His most popular on-screen character has been the dumb ‘Lucky’ in the Golmaal series. Next year Diwali should see the fourth instalment of this crazy comic ride release in cinemas.

His other successes include the adult comedy series, ‘Kya Kool Hain Hum’ and the gritty thrillers ‘Khakee’ and ‘Shootout at Wadala.’

Community Commitment

Radio Tarana Managing Director Robert Khan said that the Festival is a part of the radio station’s commitment to serve the community.

“Our events are always free for all New Zealanders and this Festival is our way of celebrating the cultural and culinary diversity of India. We are putting together a packed programme of fashion, cultural items, Hindi film music and dance, stalls selling food and many other items of interest and use and much more. We are confident that ‘Festival of India 2016’ will have enhanced value with the presence of Tusshar Kapoor,” he said.
