About the Show


Bollywood Star is a six part docu-series that chronicles the nationwide search for an unknown talent, who will compete to win the prize of a lifetime – a role in a Bollywood film.

Canadians from across the country submitted their auditions online for a chance to go to Bollywood. Ten talented people were chosen to come to Toronto and begin training. Acting as a mentor is award-winning Indo-Canadian filmmaker Richie Mehta; who’s goal is to help them navigate their entrance into the biggest film industry on earth.

Only six people will be invited to travel to Mumbai – where their dancing and acting chops will be tested as they plunge into the pure culture shock of life in the capital of Bollywood. Through their eyes, we will experience the ups and downs and aspiration, as they peek behind the glittering façade of Bollywood to face its hard-core realities and the heart they’ll need to make it.

It will all come down to a final audition with Bollywood Director Homi Adajania, who will select one lucky person to cast in his next film.

Bollywood Star combines the colour and energy of Bollywood in this captivating, six-part docu-series exclusive to OMNI Television.
