The gripping tale is brought to life by eight key characters, all of whom have received high praise for their noteworthy performances, in addition to 54 other supporting performers. From the noble king Salamat Shah and his sons to his treacherous sister Marjaani, whose thirst for power knows no bounds, the contrasting personalities of every character shines through effortlessly. Completing the remarkable cast are Gulpari and Jharna, the two leading ladies who play love interests to the brothers, Nashook, a conniving jester and Jugnu, the king’s loyal guardian. Adding the perfect element of cheer to the intense drama on stage are all the makings of a Bollywood blockbuster – energetic dance numbers, powerful background score and colourful costumes. Watch in amazement as the charming young princes brave every hurdle along the way to emerge victorious, winning over the hearts of their subjects and the audiences, too.
But the excitement doesn’t end there. To make your experience at Dubai Parks and Resorts even more entertaining, every spot you book for the show also gives you access to the theme park itself.
