Greater Springfield hosts Bollywood superstar
BOLLYWOOD is coming to Springfield as part of the Springfield Malayalee Association's Vishu/Easter 2017 event.
In conjunction with the official launch of the group, the free Vishu/Easter 2017 program will host Bollywood superstar, Manoj K Jayan, as well as a range of distinguished guests in support of the group's contribution to the Springfield community.
Springfield Malayalee Association (SMA) Secretary, Jack Varghese said the group formed only a few months ago in the hope of highlighting the importance of blood and organ donation, as well as supporting other general community initiatives.
"Manoj K Jayan is an Indian Bollywood actor and singer who has been acting for 20 years and like lots of these actors he likes to support charities, so he will be coming to support us as part of our inauguration function," Mr Varghese said.
"The SMA is a charitable organisation which was started by a group of nurses and doctors with 90 per cent of us living in the Springfield community.
"We're actually making history as the first Indian settlers to have come to Australia to start up a charitable group like ours."
The Vishu/Easter event will be held on Saturday April 22 from 4pm at the Latter Day Saints Church Hall, 82 Leon Capra Drive, Augustine Heights.
