We at BollySpice are not just excited but inspired by John Travolta having attended the Iifa awards.
As the anticipation builds up on seeing the icon strut his stuff on a Bollywood screen very soon, we at BollySpice were suddenly struck by the thought:
How Cool would a Bollywood version of Travolta’s legendary musical Grease be?!
One summer, Danny meets Sandy.
Danny and Sandy fall in love.
As the summer break ends so does their love story as they part ways.
By fate, they end up at the same school but things are not so simple. Danny has a “cool dude” reputation to maintain and doesn’t let his true feelings show… for a while!
Grease is a romantic, feel good musical on love, friendship and coming of age.
Well, we just wouldn’t let a mesmerising thought like this be left to our imaginations… »
