The magic of Bollywood has even gripped Malaysian school students.
The stage at the Esplanade came to life after 18 dance students entertained guests with a variety of Indian dances, sketches, and songs.
Dance instructor Nimal Raj said that the dances and songs were based on songs from the current Hindi movies.
And most of the dancers were secondary school students.
"They usually practise for four hours four times each week to prepare for a show like this," the New Straits Times quoted him as saying.
