From the Magical Grill to Mumbai

'How to Make a Killing in Bollywood'

PACKET after packet of vegetable pakora or superstardom on the Bollywood stage — it’s not exactly a hard choice, is it?

Not for our hero Raza Khan at least, who wants one last shot as an actor before settling into the family takeaway business.

Step one is leaving behind dreary Scotland for the bright lights of Bollywood, and step two is to get rich and famous.

The big question, of course: is it as easy as all that?

NLP Theatre production How To Make a Killing in Bollywood ran at last year’s Fringe, where it received the thumbs up from Edinburgh critics.

The comedy show is now touring the country — and arriving at Eastwood Park Theatre in time for the Saturday night crowds.

The show follows Raza and his best pal Gurjit on a last-chance road from the Magic Grill to Mumbai.

The friendship between the two is put to the test though, as their dreams don’t quite go to plan.

Audiences can look forward to Bollywood dance numbers coupled with a cracking, high energy soundtrack.

It’s safe to say that How To Make a Killing... is the ideal way to round off your weekend (and without all the calories in that pakora 
packet).

The show kicks off at Eastwood Park on Saturday (March 1), 7.30pm.

Tickets are £13 (£10 conc, £9 student), available from 577 4956 or www.eastrenfrewshire.gov.uk.
