After wowing north American and European audiences, the Bachchan family will go on stage in India with their 'Unforgettable' tour.
Confirms Amitabh Bachchan, "We're working on it. The details are yet to be worked out. Wizcraft is handling the project."
The show's first lap will cover the four metros Mumbai, Chennai, Delhi and Kolkata, followed by other large cities like Bangalore, Hyderabad and Ahmedabad, sources said.
Sabbas Joseph, director Wizcraft, told IANS: "We're in the process of working out the nitty-gritty of the Indian shows. One thing is for sure. We won't restrict the Unforgettable concerts to the four metros. They'll go to the smaller towns, depending on the feasibility, security bandobast etc. But after the response we saw to the Bachchans abroad we wouldn't like to keep our own country-men deprived of the experience."
Every effort is being made to ensure the concerts go to as many cities in India as possible.
"But in a phased manner," warns Sabbas. "We would have a few Indian concerts at a time to avoid excessive pressure on the time of the Bachchans and the star-performers."
The good news is that the concerts will feature exactly the same star lineup in India as abroad, meaning the Big B, Abhishek, Aishwarya and Preity Zinta-Riteish Deshmukh.
Reasons Sabbas, "Why should it be any other way? We at Wizcraft don't believe in two levels of quality, national and international. More details on the national Unforgettables will emerge. At the moment we're putting together the fourth season of the dance reality-show Nach Baliye."
Sabbas Joseph promises big changes and big plans. "Naturally with so many Nach Baliye spinoffs on television we've to make sure that the fourth season is bigger, more lavish and eye-catching and with a far more enticing lineup of dancing couples than before. The contestants are unusually-paired and the judges Karisma Kapoor, Arjun Rampal and Farah Khan have been chosen not only for their glamour quotient but also for their compatibility.
"We wanted to make the fourth season of Nach Baliye different. I think viewers are tired of seeing the same contestants and judges in different permutations on all the dance-based reality shows."
