Those who have been following the stellar rise of Pakistan’s most well-known rock band — Junoon — will now have the opportunity to see them perform live. The Junoon concert will be followed by ‘Bindaas Bollywood’, the show featuring popular actresses. Postcard Millionaire is the title sponsor for ‘Bindaas Bollywood’. Both shows have been organised by Concept Events.

Considered to be the subcontinent’s greatest crossover success after the late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Junoon, led by the mercurial Ali Azmat with Salman Ahmed, uses soaring guitar riffs to deliver a Sufi message of mystic harmony.

The ‘Bindaas Bollywood’ contingent includes former Miss Asia-Pacific Dia Mirza, Meghna Naidu of Kaliyon ka Chaman fame, Kim Sharma, the much-loved actress from Mohabbatein. Rakhi Sawant, who returned to the charts in Lata Mangeshkar’s famous Pardesiya in its remixed version, Mumait Khan from the comedy movie, Munnabhai MBBS and Dipal Shaw, the famous ‘baby doll’ will also be in the show.

Aly Khan, actor and Zee TV presenter, will be the host for the evening. Fans in Dubai can attend both shows, ‘Bindaas Bollywood’ and Junoon for the price of one ticket. A certain amount from the proceeds of the show will go towards supporting earthquake relief efforts in India and Pakistan.

Tickets to the show range in price, from Dh45 (bronze, standing), Dh90 (silver, seated), Dh250 (gold, seated) and Dh500 (diamond, seated). Ticket holders will receive a free trial subscription to The Emirates Evening Post and a Postcard Millionaire pack, which gives them a chance to become a millionaire. Tickets to both shows are available at all leading Postcard Millionaire outlets, at Bombay Chowpatty, Sind Punjab, Chappan Bhog and Choithram supermarkets.
