    • Synopsis
    • Delusional Bollywood icon extraordinaire – POPO GIGI – swoops to London on his grandiose mission: to nab the lead in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. However, he can neither act, nor remember lines. Propelled by his zany ‘entourage‘ of multi-national patriots, and the salacious POPO KITTENS, he not only has to defy the snobbish world of British theatrics, but also his menacing twin – puppeteered by his sinister Russian crush.

      Against all odds and empowered with divine inspiration, he deviously snatches the role – only to be dropped just before opening night…

      Will Popo Gigi ever be allowed to stage his Bollywoodesque Romeo and Juliet in England? Which gives credence to his secret agenda: to honour Shakespeare by moving his home-town to its spiritual home – Bollywood! Where else? But will he succeed...
