For the first time ever, some of the magic and fun from Bollywood is coming to Wagga.
To share some of their culture with the rest of the city, the Wagga Indian Community is hosting a Bollywood evening.
Amit Gupta, the general secretary of the Wagga Indian Community, said the term is a play on the word Hollywood, given to the Indian film industry. The B comes from Bombay, a major city in India.
“Everyone likes Bollywood and Bollywood dancing,” he said.
“We have arranged one of the three famous Sydney Bollywood bands to come here,” he said.
With traditional food, cultural dances and options to donate to Cancer Council Australia, Mr Gupta promises a fun night for the everyone involved.
“When we talk about Bollywood, we talk about the songs, the beats, the singing,” he said.
“It’s the largest film industry in the world that produces an average of three movies per day.”
Mr Gupta said Wagga’s Indian community was steadily growing in size and estimate it’s about 1200 people.
“We want to give back to the community and increase people’s awareness of us,” he said.
In May, a dozen people from the Wagga Indian Community took part in the group’s first mass blood donation.
They also hosted Holi, the festival of colours, for the first time in March which is aimed at spreading community unity.
