Kolkata :  

Actress turned BJP MP Hema Malini on Monday said she has asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to build auditoriums in metro cities which can stage international cultural shows for a 5000 strong audience.

"I have already told (Narendra) Modiji to give more attention to issues like building large auditoriums in cities where you can accommodate 4000-5000 people for international shows," the 68-year-old Mathura MP told reporters in Kolkata.

"The NCPA auditorium in Mumbai we have, in Delhi there is one or two auditorium. But for such a huge programme you have only a seating capacity of 1000 people. You need at least5000-6000," said Hema Malini.

The 'Dream-girl' was talking to reporters after announcing that 'Synergy', an amalgamation of Georgian and Indian dance styles, would be held here on September 15.

The show will be hosted here by Hema Malini's 'Jaya Smriti', Indo-Occidental Symbiosis and Calcutta Club. Georgian dance would be performed by members of the Sukhishvili, stated to be the first professional state dance company of the Eurasian country.

On Sukhishvili, Hema Malini said, "It is a very big international group coming to India after 55 years." India does not have the infrastructure in terms of audience capacity to host its programmes, she said and expressed hope that in 2-3 years.

"we can have proper stage arrangements so that anyone from abroad can perform here." On 'Synergy', the renowned dancer said, it is a"beautiful amalgamation of two cultures, of two dance forms."

Georgian dance forms will be complemented by Bharatnatyam, Kathak and Manipuri and live orchestra including ancient instruments would be played on stage, she said.

Recollecting her visit to Georgia to attend a women's conference, she said she had seen almost 100 boys and girls practising on the stage of national Georgian dance studio.

The Georgians recall having visited India during the regime of Jawaharlal Nehru and Raj Kapur 55 years back and they were so willing to revisit India," she said.

"I have personally invited West Bengal Chief minister Mamata Banerjee. I wish representatives from arts and other disciplines also come and watch the show," she said.
