[Dubai, United Arab Emirates] – If you spend your free time singing DDLJ songs into your hairbrush, we may have found the perfect job for you in Dubai.
Bollywood Parks Dubai, the upcoming theme park by Dubai Parks and Resorts is searching for over 200 performers and will be auditioning candidates in the UAE, as well as in India.
The park, which opens in October 2016 near Jebel Ali, is working with Wizcraft — organisers of the annual IIFA Bollywood awards show — to find dancers, singers, actors and acrobats for its live entertainment and a Bollywood musical show.
Don’t worry if Bollywood dance moves aren’t your strong point: Dubai Parks and Resorts say they are also looking for talent needed in the other parks at the resort.
“At Bollywood Parks Dubai we want to showcase the very best of India through music, dance and culture. We are extremely excited to launch this campaign, which will give the selected performers the opportunity to be part of one of the most exciting destinations in the region,” says Thomas Jellum, general manager of Bollywood Parks Dubai,
