Auditions for the reality TV show Bollywood Star will be held in Vancouver this coming Saturday, September 21st at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
The four-part docu-series to be aired on OMNI will chronicle the nationwide search for an unknown talent, who will compete to win the prize of a lifetime – a part in a Bollywood movie.
While thousands will audition, only 16 hopefuls will make it to the next round in Toronto. The Top 16 will have one last chance to impress a panel of celebrity judges who will decide which six will embark on the next stage of the competition in India.
The final six competitors will travel to Mumbai – the epicentre of Bollywood – where they will be immersed in a boot camp with industry insiders who will push them physically and emotionally to see if they have what it takes.
It will all come down to a final audition before an acclaimed director who will select Canada's first Bollywood Star.
Auditions open to Canadians over the age of 18.
The panel of judges include Anita Majumdar, Richie Mehta and Rupinder Nagra.
