Bollywood is set to follow in the footsteps of Hollywood by launching its very own Walk of Fame to honour the biggest names in the Indian movie industry. The UTV Stars’ Walk of the Stars will be officially launched tomorrow by leading Bollywood actress, Kareena Kapoor.
The new Walk of the Stars at Bandra’s Bandstand Promenade will allow tourists and Mumabi residents alike to view the sea-facing street lined with paving stones bearing the hand prints of famous Bollywood stars for free.
In addition to the pavement slabs featuring the handprints from the biggest names in the Indian Movie business, the Walk of the Stars will also pay homage to those with legendary status in Bollywood. The life size statues will be made of brass and set on benches up and down the special Mumbai street. Actor and presenter, Amitabh Bachchan, Dev Anand and Rajesh Khanna are all believed to be in line to have a special brass statue made in their image and placed on the Walk of the Stars.
The Kapoor family are believed to me amongst the first to get their hands printed on special paving slabs to line the new Walk of Stars, with Kareena Kapoor expected to officially open the exciting new attractions in Mumbai tomorrow.
The UTV Stars’ Walk of Fame has taken 18 months to create, with TV channel, UTV, only revealing their plans for the creation of the 1.2 mile long walk of fame 5 months ago.
