Contrary to Bollywood shows not doing well on foreign shores, the Caribbean 'Bollywood Nite' held this week in the Port of Spain, Trinidad, West Indies, not only witnessed a full house, but even had to turn away more than a thousand people due to lack of space and seats.
The Center of Excellence Auditorium in the Port of Spain could not take more than its capacity of 8,000 people, who screamed and cheered Akshay Kumar, Urmila Matondkar, Dino Morea and Manisha Koirala throughout their performances. They went crazier when Alisha Chinoy sang her popular 'Made in India' number.
Such was the frolic and frenzy that its organizers, AIM India [partnered by Chunky Panday and Abhijit Chowdhary], plan to hold a similar show again in the West Indies beginning of next year.
