Bombay Blush is an Entertainment programme.
Welcome to the India of soap stars, game shows, disco divas and debt collecting euniuchs.
Lively, intelligent and witty, Bombay Blush is a celebration of modern Indian pop culture. Newcomers Mini Mathur and Asif Seth bring UK audiences an amusing guide to the heart of contemporary India.
Each week, this programme explores Indias version of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" - "Kaun Benaga Crorepati" hosted by Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan; the wannabe stars of Boogie Woogie, an Indian "Stars in their Eyes"; lap dancing clubs where the girls earn their crust not by taking their clothes off, but by keeping them on; the Unique Recoveries Debt Collection Agency - who all happen to be eunuchs; Bollywood health and fitness guru Mickey Mehta; the 18 stone king of Indian disco, Buppia Lahiri; and the Bombay Laughter Clubs on Juhu Beach.
This programme introduces guest presenter Angelo, the Goanese Lounge Singer. Clad in silver hot pants and leopard skin jacket, Angelo visits the Bombay Grooming School for aspiring models and delves into Bombay's equivalent of Fame's School for Performing Arts.
