Celebrate the life and times of Rajesh Khanna in the Tribute to Rajesh Khanna show at Sibaya

The spirit of the “father” of Indian cinema, or the “first superstar” or “original superstar” as he is known, lives on at Sibaya Entertainment Kingdom & Resort in the Tribute to Rajesh Khanna show on August 24 and 25, 2018.

Impersonator and look-alike, Mahesh Kumar, assumes the role of Rajesh Khanna in this music and dance spectacular as he brings to life the Bollywood actor, film producer and politician who starred in 15 consecutive solo hit films in the period 1969 to 1971, a record still unbeaten. With realistic looks and original dance moves, Khanna’s presence will almost be tangible as Kumar entertains guests.

A Tribute to Rajesh Khanna will feature Chetan Rana from India who also performed on Sony TV for the show, K for Kishore finishing in the top 2. Rana, who also performed in Durban for two previous sell out shows, was a huge hit with fans and will be returning to South Africa by public demand. Prepare to be taken on a nostalgic journey back in time to celebrate the music from the movies Rajesh Khanna starred in.

Also expected to have fans toe-tapping, clapping and dancing away are a host of featured local singers including Sharmaine Deol, Eshara Maharaj, Seleena Mohanlal and Ugesh Singh. To top off the anticipated line-up, South Africa’s leading showband, the Chonchords, will see to the music backing of the live show.

If you are a fan of the multi award-winning, highly commended and celebrated late Rajesh Khanna, his movies and music, be sure to catch this show at Sibaya’s IZulu Theatre on August 24 and 25 at 20h00.
