Indian actors Anil Kapoor, Raveena Tandon and Ameesha Patel will attend the Indo Fest TLV in Tel Aviv, Israel, hosted by India-based event organisers Universal Events in association with Research Media Group. A crowd of 30,000 Indians is expected to attend the festival.
The idea behind the show, says Universal Event’s director Moses Kurma, is to foster relationships between the two communities. The festival will take place from 15 October to 17 October.
“Anil Kapoor’s presence will help encourage art and culture. It’s also a big josh for the Indian community residing in Israel,” says Moses. Research Media Group’s Chairman Chaitanya Janga says, “Around 10 celebrities from Bollywood and Kollywood will be attending the festival, so it’s going to be spectacular. It promises to be one of the biggest event in the history of Indo-Israel cultural relations. The festival will explore art, culture and tourism of India. It will be the first of many.”
Bollywood & Tollywood Actress Payal Ghosh, the show stopper of fashion show, launched the poster of the festival on 24 August. “Hope this festival highlights Indian culture and fosters tourism,” she says.
