Namaste and welcome aboard the Taj Express as it makes its exhilarating and vibrant journey from Mumbai – the city of dreams, to Agra – home of the Taj Mahal
Taj Express is a thrilling new “Dance Romance” Direct from film city – Mumbai. The cream of India’s film talent, dancing in 2000 sparkling costumes, within a lavish set, for the first time in Bollywood musical history, the production fuses music, dance and film on stage.
Featuring all the extravaganza, escapism and romance that is “Bollywood”, this production is a fusion of east and west, classical dance steps, new impossibly sexy moves, traditional silks and turbans with leather and lycra, pulsating modern music, played on the finest Indian Classical instruments.
During our journey, refreshing snippets from India’s rich and diverse heritage will be served. On the menu are electrifying dance numbers including vibrant and rhythmic forms like the Lavani from Maharashtra, the Koothu from South India and the dance of the blue god – Lord Shiva’s mesmerising and powerful Tandava.
The story has elements of comedy, suspense, laughter, romance, controversy, action and a host of unforgettable characters and promises not only to bring Bollywood to the world – but guarantees to reveal the vividly engaging heart of India as well.
A prince at heart and a pauper in the pocket, a street-smart thief Vasu is a homeless robber with a scruffy outside and a heart of gold. Mothered by the streets of the big brutal city, Vasu grows up to be one of the best thieves in Mumbai – but he longs for a settled life away from the big city chaos of Mumbai.

But despite more than a few tender moments, she leaves to reunite with the man of her dreams. Heart-broken, Vasu decides to follow his destiny. But Destiny, as we Indians know, has its own plan.
