New Delhi: For all those who are passionate about dance, fascinated with stories and want to be a part of the prestigious play ‘Mughal-e-Azam: The Musical, here's a golden opportunity.

The second season of ‘Mughal-e-Azam: The Musical' will be staged at the Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium in Delhi from February 1 to 11 which will also mark the 100th show of this world-class theatrical production.

Towards this, the production team is searching for best Kathak dancers from Delhi and Mumbai. Any female Kathak dancer, aged between 18-30 can participate in the auditions to be held in New Delhi and Mumbai on Jan 6.

"The stage at the Jawaharlal Nehru Auditorium (JNA) in Delhi is double in size than that of the Mumbai stage and would require more number of dancers for the show which is why, they are looking out for the best female Kathak dancers to be a part of "Mughal-e-Azam: The Musical'," lead choreographer Mayuri Upadhya, who will be conducting the dance auditions, said in a statement.

"The dancers have the most fascinating and the most demanding role in Mughal-e-Azam. At one point they speak the madness of the emporer Akbar with just the sound of their 'ghungroo's 'and at another the free loving spirit of Anarkali is brought out. They are the one's who take the journey forward connecting the audience with sheer poetry of classical movement," she added.

The auditions will be held on January 6 at Rapid Waters Private Ltd in Mumbai and Saraswati Music College in Delhi.
