Over the years, Bollywood movies & music has spread in popularity across the world. And after Europe & America, filmmakers have seen Australia as the next big destination to shoot in. With some big name movies like Dil Chahta Hai & Salaam Namaste having been set in Australia, a lot of interest has been generated for Bollywood movies here.
It’s no surprise then that some of the biggest names in the industry are heading Down Under. And this summer, its going to be music to the ears of the South Asian community as the ever popular musician trio of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy are making their maiden visit to Melbourne, thanks to Remit2India, the leading online money transfer service from the Times of India Group.
Popularly recognized as the group that has revolutionized Bollywood music, the trio has to their credit some of the biggest scores including Kal Ho Na Ho, Rock On, Bunty aur Babli & the recent blockbuster Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara amongst others.
“We are so excited to perform in Australia for the first time,” says singer Shankar Mahadevan of the leading trio of songwriters-music composers-performers reigning over the Bollywood music industry.
The trio has performed at arenas worldwide, the last being a sold-out debut at London’s Royal Albert Hall and the band proclaims: “London was big but let’s make Melbourne bigger!”
‘Remit2India’s service is just like Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy’s music – fresh, contemporary & fitting in perfectly with the needs of our Indian community in Australia. We ensure a safer and quicker online money transfer experience, with the ease and reliability of our proprietary technology. Bringing the trio’s concert to Melbourne is one our ways with connecting with the strong Indian community here” says Achal Shah, Head – Marketing, TimesofMoney – the company that runs the Remit2India service.
