One of the highlights of the winter entertainment calendar at Sibaya Casino & Entertainment Kingdom is the vibrant tribute show to Bollywood legends, Rajesh Khanna and Kishore Kumar.

The showcase, A Tribute to Legends, celebrates the life and times of these iconic entertainers in a song and dance spectacular featuring a talented cast of performers. A Tribute to Legends will be staged at Sibaya’s iZulu Theatre for two nights only on 19 and 20 July 2019.

Rajesh Khanna, a Bollywood actor, film producer and politician, is often referred to as the "first superstar" and the "original superstar" of Indian cinema. He starred in 15 consecutive solo hit films in the period 1969 to 1971. Kishore Kumar was an Indian film playback singer, actor, lyricist, composer, producer and director. He is considered one of the most successful playback singers of the Bollywood film industry.

Impersonator and look-alike, Mahesh Kumar, assumes the role of Rajesh Khanna in this colourful tribute show. With realistic looks and original dance moves, Khanna’s presence will almost be tangible as Kumar entertains guests.

Singer, Chetan Rana from India, who performed on Sony TV for the show, K for Kishore, finishing in the top two and who has also performed in Durban for previous sell out shows, will once again be back. He will take audiences on a nostalgic journey back in time to celebrate the music from the movies.

A Tribute to Legends will also feature two local female singers Eshara Maharaj and Seleena Mohanlal. Musical backing for the concert will be by South Africa’s leading show band, the Conchords, while three dance groups will enthrall the audiences with dazzling dance displays.

A Tribute to Legends has performances at the iZulu Theatre at Sibaya on July 19 and 20 at 20h00. Tickets R130, R150, R200 and R250 from Computicket, Shoprite/Checkers or Sibaya Box Office.
