(Shreya Ghoshal)

After performing to sold-out audiences in 2016, the internationally acclaimed and award-winning ‘Queen of Bollywood’, Shreya Ghoshal, returns, by popular demand, to serenade South African fans with yet another night of soulful melody and music.

Shreya will be accompanied by popular Indian vocalist, Kinjal Chattopadhyay, with support performances by the stars of Sony Entertainment TV, Shaheer Sheikh and Kushal Tandon. Shreya Ghoshal Live in Concert will head to the Durban ICC on August 19, 2017.

Fans can expect to be taken on an unforgettable musical journey as Shreya performs all her biggest chart-toppers, fan favourites and classics including her recent hit from the movie Half Girlfriend, Deewani Mastani (Bajiro Mastani), Ooh La La Ooh La La (Dirty Picture), Radha on the Dancefloor (Student of the Year), Teri Meri (Bodyguard), Manwa Laaga (Happy New Year) and Sun Raha Hai Na Tu (Aashiqui 2), as well as the evergreen songs of Lata Mangeshkar. Ghoshal’s production quality of her live shows are renowned worldwide and this show will be no different.

With Twitter fans exceeding 4.6 million and over 28 million Facebook followers, there seems to be no end to Shreya’s success. Having entered the music industry 17 years ago, she continues to lead the Bollywood playback pack and continues to enjoy sweeping wins at the major award shows. Aside from her illustrious Bollywood career and being the first Indian singer to be waxed at Madame Tussauds, Ghoshal has a pretty impressive track record.  She has released over 16 studio albums; has sung around 1500 songs in 11 Indian languages; has over 275 nominations and 116 awards including four national awards and 15 filmfare awards and her music has seen her travel across the globe performing in prestigious venues such as Wembley Arena in London, Rosemont Theatre in Chicago and the Sydney Opera House in Australia.

I am so fortunate that my music takes me around the world, and I’m absolutely delighted that I get to return to the beautiful South Africa,” says Ghoshal.

Rising star (and Law Graduate from Calcutta University), Kinjal Chattopadhyay makes his debut stage performance in South Africa alongside Shreya Ghoshal. With a promising musical career ahead of him, Kinjal is widely recognised for appearing on shows such as Idea Rocks India, Tara Muzik, Akash Bangla and Zee Bangla Sa Re Ga Ma Pa.

Eagerly awaiting their debut appearances in South Africa, Sony TV stars, Shaheer Sheik (Dev) and Kushal Tandon (Arjun) will be the supporting acts on stage and are sure to have their fans captivated with their performances. Maybe it’s his droopy eyes or his infectious smile that has fans glued to Sony TV daily but the lawyer-turned-actor, Shaheer Sheik, who fans will know as Dev from the series Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi, has already bagged the Star of the Year and Most Popular Actor for 2016 and has been stealing millions of hearts since. Kushal Tandon, who plays opposite Jennifer Winget and Aneri Vajani on the romantic thriller, Beyhadh, was recently voted as one of Asia’s top 50 sexiest men and received Best Actor at the 2017 Lions Gold Awards.
