Glee's Bollywood Twist: New Indian Character?!Wednesday, November 02, 2011
Fans of Glee will be pleasantly surprised that the popular musical TV show is likely to get an Indian tadka in the new season.
There's a possibility that writers will include a plot that has a new Indian character (possibly a girl) who will introduce the group to Bollywoodand Indian music.
It seems the producers want to pull out all stops to stay loyal to their fanbase and also rope in a newer audience. In the past, shows like So You Think You Can Dance and the Emmy award-winning sitcom The Big Bang Theory have had an Indian angle.
A source reveals, "Glee writers are planning to introduce an Indian character who will introduce Bollywood songs to the group. There will also be a performance on a popular song. However, it isn't clear which number it will be. The producers are in the process of getting a No Objection Certificate (NOC) for the rights to the song."
Among the characters, it will be either Britney (Heather Morris) or Kurt (Chris Colfer) who will dance to the song.
