AFTER performing to sold-out audiences in 2016, the award-winning ‘Queen of Bollywood’, Shreya Ghoshal, returns to serenade South African fans with a night of soulful melody and music.
Accompanied by popular Indian vocalist, Kinjal Chattopadhyay, and the stars of Sony Entertainment TV, Shaheer Sheikh and Kushal Tandon, she will perform at the Durban ICC on August 19 and the Centre Court at Emperors Palace in Johannesburg on August 20.
Fans can expect to be taken on an unforgettable musical journey as Shreya performs chart-toppers, fan favourites and classics including her recent hit from the movie Half Girlfriend, Deewani Mastani (Bajiro Mastani), Ooh La La Ooh La La (Dirty Picture), Radha on the Dancefloor (Student of the Year), Teri Meri (Bodyguard), Manwa Laaga (Happy New Year) and Sun Raha Hai Na Tu (Aashiqui 2).
With Twitter followers exceeding 4.6 million and over 28 million Facebook friends, there seems to be no end to Ghoshal’s success.
She was the first Indian singer to be waxed at Madame Tussauds, has released 16 studio albums and has 116 awards including four national awards and 15 Filmfare awards. During her 17-year career she has performed at the Wembley Arena in London, Rosemont Theatre in Chicago and the Sydney Opera House in Australia.
“I am so fortunate that my music takes me around the world, and I’m absolutely delighted that I get to return to the beautiful South Africa,” says Ghoshal.
Chattopadhyay, who has appeared in Idea Rocks India, Tara Muzik, Akash Bangla and Zee Bangla Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, makes his debut stage performance in South Africa alongside Ghoshal.
Sheik and Tandon will be the supporting acts on stage. Lawyer-turned-actor, Sheik, who fans will know as Dev from the series Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi, has already bagged the Star of the Year and most popular actor for 2016; while Tandon, who plays opposite Jennifer Winget and Aneri Vajani on the romantic thriller, Beyhadh, was recently voted as one of Asia’s top 50 sexiest men and received best actor prize at the 2017 Lions Gold Awards.
Tickets start from R280 and are available through Computicket.
