LEXINGTON, MA—You had your favorite Bollywood’s romantic couples on silver screen. Why are those pairs also iconic? Local singer Mohan Subramaniam and his team will answer such questions during their upcoming musical Aashiq-e-Sadabahar: Bollywood’s Romantic Screen Couples, on April 28 in Lexington, MA.
“We think of couples as iconic because of the special roles they have played and have displayed some unique chemistry when paired together,” Mr. Subramaniam told INDIA New England News. “Most of us would probably unanimously think of Raj Kapoor – Nargis, Dilip Kumar-Vyjayanthi Mala or Rajesh Khanna-Mumtaz among the top few iconic couples.”
Moreover, the unforgettable songs filmed on these couples have further added to their iconic stature, Mr. Subramaniam said.
“But beyond these obvious pairs, there are others — and the show unfolds different aspects of why those pairs are also iconic. Carefully choreographed videos in the background will further enrich the presentation of the theme. And in the process, the audience will experience a beautiful melodic journey, with songs that will kindle many fond memories.”
In an exclusive video interview with INDIA New England News, Mr. Subramaniam talks about romantic couples of Bollywood and how he and his team comes up with theme-based musical programs annually. To watch the full interview, please click here or on the video below.
