On July 18, 2008 the highly anticipated Unforgettable Tour will make its debut in Toronto, Canada. The show will take many of our favorite Bollywood stars all over the globe. One place in particular will be in UK at The O2 arena. It has played host to performers such as Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Kylie Minogue, and the Rolling Stones. Now it will be playing host to the stars of the Unforgettable Tour. One star in particular is Preity Zinta.
Although their performance for the UK isn’t until Sunday August 24, 2008, Preity is busy rehearsing in Mumbai nonetheless. We can somewhat predict the kind of songs that might be performed judging by the list of stars, but details about the show are not being revealed to the public. Surely, we are anticipating the wonderful surprises the stars have in store for us. Preity did not reveal too much about the tour but did comment on the fact that the Unforgettable Tour features something different than any other tour out there. “The fact that there is a completely new star cast who have never been on the world concert before, that’s one of the USP’s,” she said. The star power isn’t the only thing that sets the tour apart from others. The locations that the tour is set to perform in also have something different in store for us.
Hindi cinema fans in at least two continents will have the chance to see some of their favorite stars. According to Preity, “Different people from different countries are going to get a different taste of the Unforgettable Tour. Canada will have Akshay Kumar as a guest performer. Madhuri Dixit is going to tour America with us and Shilpa Shetty as we all know is a UK favourite. Plus the choreography is done by Shiamak Davar who will also be performing. He is of par excellence in choreography. There are lot more surprises installed.” But inquiring minds really want to know some sort of inside detail. “You’ll just have to wait and watch,” she siad.
It is also assumed that the lovely pairing of Abhishek and Preity will perform the famous numbers from their film Jhoom Barabar Jhoom. Which ones? Possibly the title track and ‘Bol Na Halke Halke.’ “I am sorry but we are not allowed to disclose out on which numbers we are going to perform and if your guess is as good as mine, you’re lucky. Yes, you can predict the songs seeing my pairing with Abhishek. But that’s it. There’s a lot more to look out for,” she responded.
A thing to take note of is the official promotional picture in which we see all the stars wearing red in some form or fashion. Well, the stylish outfits were designed by Manish Maholtra and some other top notch designers. “Lot of preparation is going on for the tour as of now. We are all very excited and are rehearsing for three to four hours a day. New things are coming up everyday and so is the entry of guest stars.” Hmm, what else can be going on? One can’t help but think that along with the expected surprises will be more surprises. “I think whatever you get is going to be more than what you expect. I can promise you that.” Wow, a star that is willing to stand by her word and deliver a promise. “There is going to be a lot of everything in this show. I don’t want to talk much about it because it’s better you all watch it live.”
Along with the talented stars, it appears we must not forget the company that is bringing the tour to us. “This is going to be the biggest world tour coming out of the Indian Film Industry and all credit goes to Wizcraft in the way they’ve put the show up. Not to forget, we too have done our part to push it to another level (laughs).” If by another level means not revealing any secrets and getting an all-star cast together on one stage, then we would agree.
