A little bit about the play, ‘Dishoom!’: Set in the 1970s about friendship, courage and finding a voice, the play sees the professional debut of local Ilford talent, Bilal Khan in the lead role as ‘Simon’. Confined to a wheelchair and lacking in confidence, his life takes a turn when cousin Baljit (Gurkiran Kaur) appears and shows him the iconic Bollywood film, ‘Sholay‘. From that moment two become a little bit like Jai (Amitabh Bachchan) and Veeru (Dharmendra) in the film and the production takes its musical cue and dynamism from one of the most enduring pieces of Indian cinema ever created…
