Beliebers, it’s time to rejoice! Canadian pop-star Justin Bieber performs in the city on May 10 and is expected to be in Mumbai for a few days. Though his bizarre lists of demands have caught people’s attention, this is also the first time that the musician will be performing in the city. We have put together a handy rule-book that Justin can refer to during his stay in the city

Must see

Since Coldplay shot their last video in Dharavi, Asia’s biggest slum, we are guessing, it will be interesting to take a tour of the place. And while you are at it, buying a few leather accessories as souvenirs won’t hurt either.

Ditch the routine usual suspects and head to Dhobi Ghat in Mahalaxmi, for a unique experience where you will get a first-hand experience of how the world’s largest launderette functions.

Must do

Ditch the chopper and take a ride in the local train and experience the way the locals commute daily. Maybe even click a selfie or two with unsuspecting passengers.

Visit colleges to meet the youngsters outside of the concert arena. Meet some of the brilliant young minds in our country and get their take on the world.

If you are bored of the pristine beaches, we urge you to take a walk at the famous Chowpatty. Better still, you could go there for your morning walk.

Since your haircuts are known to be ‘ridiculously expensive’, you could perhaps experience the local flavour by walking into a small salon and getting a haircut.

Must eat

You haven’t been to India, if you haven’t relished the street food here, especially the golgappas. But here’s a quick tip though Bieber: make sure you head to a place that prepares pani puri with distilled water. Also, sample the most popular street food in Mumbai, the humble vada pav. With extra chutney, please?

If the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Prince William and Kate Middleton found their culinary muse at Britannia & Company in Fort, the Canadian singer will surely to love the Berry Pulao there.

Please don’t!

Do not play with the Indian flag. Better yet, do not include it in your list of onstage props. Chris Martin has had his share of controversy trying to bring some Indian spirit on the stage.

Do not kiss a girl onstage. Although you would’ve made a teenage girl’s day, you may soon have to deal with culture vultures who will take you to court for taking the chastity of an Indian girl lightly. We don’t want Richard Gere and Shilpa Shetty history repeating.

As much as young teenagers would love the sight of you stripping to a bare minimum on stage, you probably should refrain from doing that in India.
