Prisoners to treat Big B and SRK with dance

A group of 48 inmates serving life sentences at Kolkata’s Presidency and Alipore jail will get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to entertain Bollywood superstars Amitabh Bachchan and Shahrukh Khan today by group dancing. At the inauguration ceremony of the Kolkata International Film Festival (KIFF) at the Netaji Indoor Stadium, the prisoners will present four group dances which includes traditional folk dance ‘Chhau’, a peacock-style dance and an invocation to the Goddess Kali. Besides Khan and Big B, others from Bollywood like Katrina Kaif, Anushka Sharma and Mithun Chakraborty are also expected to be present at the inauguration along with West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. The eight-minute performance by the troupe will be an excerpt from Rabindranath Tagore’s dance drama ‘Valmiki Pratibha’ and would be directed by dancer and choreographer Alakananda Roy who has trained the inmates in a process of their gradual return to the mainstream. “All of them are very excited and feel honoured to be invited for this show.
