Bollywood in RAK

It seems that Ras Al Khaima, otherwise known as RAK, is going to be the center of a big event next weekend. Some major stars from the Indian movie making capital known as Bollywood will be making an appearance and competing in a friendly cricket match at the water park called Iceland. (click here for details) The event will be Friday, May 27th and tickets are 250 Dh for standard entry and 500 Dh for VIP entry.

While this isn't big news for those that don't follow Bollywood movies, from what I understand, these actors are pretty big. The line-up includes: Sanjay Dutt, Mallika Sherawat, Irrfan Khan, Mohanlal, Bobby Deol and Neha Dhupia. There will also be a song and dance performance by some other names that I don't know about.

This event looks like it is an attempt by the owners of the improbable penguin-themed water park in the middle of the desert to gain some notoriety for something other than being a huge carbon footprint money pit of a disaster.
