Al­most fa­mous

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - E Guide Television - DEB­BIE SCHIPP BOLLYWOOD STAR, SBS One, Satur­day, 7.30pm

IT SEEMS Ta­nia Zaetta isn’t enough. This hunt for a Bollywood star is an en­ter­tain­ing mix of re­al­ity tal­ent show and ob­ser­va­tional doc­u­men­tary.

Hun­dreds of hope­fuls head to au­di­tions for the ul­ti­mate prize of a Bollywood movie.

Six will head to Mum­bai for train­ing with Bollywood coaches and a taste of ev­ery­day In­dian life as they try to crack it in a movie in­dus­try that’s twice the size of Hol­ly­wood.

Cue an as­sort­ment of tal­ented, driven pro­fes­sion­als and not- so- tal­ented ec­centrics as the judges choose 24 hope­fuls.

They need to be able to act, Bollywood dance, and know a bit about the busi­ness.

Plenty fall at the first hur­dle – draw­ing the ire of lead judge, film­maker Anu­pam Sharma, when they can’t name a Bollywood film or ac­tor. And then a ba­nana farmer from Wool­go­olga walks in.
