Bollywood invasion for Zee Cine Awards at MBS
Fri, Nov 19, 2010

AFTER a two-year hiatus from the Bollywood awards scene, the Zee Cine Awards (ZCA) will be held for the first time in Singapore at the Marina Bay Sands (MBS) at the Expo and Convention Centre's Grand Ballroom.

The show will be simulcast to fans on MBS' events plaza as well.

While there has been no confirmation of how many denizens of the Bollywood planet will be descending on the island, it is believed that Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan along with Akshay Kumar will be here for the event.

The ZCA awards was first held in 1998 in Mumbai. Since then it been held in Dubai (2004), London (2005 and 2008), Mauritius (2006) and Malaysia (2007).

During the launch of the 2011 awards in September, Zee Cinema's business head Mohan Gopinath explained that the two-year hiatus was due to logistics and operational issues.

"It did not make economic and business sense. Hence, we could not go ahead," he said.

Tickets for the awards show are scheduled to go on sale next week.
