Wednesday, July 26, 2006 London (UNI): Bollywood fans in the UK will be able to buy 12- inch dolls immortalising Bollywood's leading stars Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra from August one. The first four actors under the brand name 'Bollywood Legends' is being launched by toy manufacturer and distributor Spin Master Toys UK along with entrepreneur Shameen Jivraj, who had come up with the concept four years ago. She recently approached Spin Master Toys UK to handle the UK distribution of the dolls.
Shameen has headed the 'Shiny Doll' development team as well as many other well-known children's brands such as Star Wars and Teletubbies. She said, "I became intrigued by Bollywood a little while ago and was drawn into the movies with their mix of fun, fashion, music and dance. It's such a magical and emotive arena and I wanted to create something that would allow the audiences to be able to take some of that magic home to treasure and enjoy in a unique and new way."
