Wizcraft sets ‘Unforgettable’ tour

Program headlined by Indian film stars

Indian entertainment promoter Wizcraft formally announced the 2008 start of the “Unforgettable” tour at a press conference Saturday at the Mandarin Hotel.

The program will be headlined by Indian film star Amitabh Bachchan and his fellow thesps and son and daughter-in-law, Abhishek and Aishwarya Bachchan. The six-continent traveling show will include elaborately choreographed acrobatic dancing and stop at cities across the U.S. including New York, Atlanta, Los Angeles and Chicago.

Wizcraft produces the Intl. Indian Film Academy Awards, a five-day extravaganza of sports, fashion and Hindi film stars that travels from country to country. The most recent one was held in Yorkshire, England.

The panel balked slightly at questions about the popularity of the Indian film among non-Indian audiences. “I think that the problem is the language barrier,” suggested Abhishek Bachchan.
