City anchor: Gabbar meets Paro, sets date for Republic Day parade
The characters will be joined by others when the Ministry of Information of Broadcasting tableau will roll past the lawns of India Gate during the Republic Day celebrations. The I&B Ministry is celebrating 100 years of Indian cinema.
The tableau ‘Cinema Mayur Pankhi’, say officials, is a symbolic representation of the mythical “bird-boat” celebrating Indian cinema’s contribution to the society. Complete with a reel showing snapshots and milestones of Bollywood’s journey through the decades, the tableau comes to life each time its characters start their performance.
“The tableau would be led by a muhurat — as it the tradition before starting the shoot of a film. Major milestones (will be enacted) and characters of Amitabh Bachchan, Madhuri Dixit, Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol would perform,” Hamid Hussain, APRO (Defence), told Newsline.
The dress rehearsal for the tableau parade was held in Delhi Cantonment on Tuesday.
Ministry of Social Justice’s tableau focuses on inclusion and empowerment of disabled persons. It showcases persons with disabilities as equal citizens, enjoying all fundamental rights and freedom in an “inclusive” society.
Meghalya has a beautiful tableau called ‘Hundred Drums Wangala Festival’. It is conceptualised to depict Wangala — the harvest carnival celebrated by the Garo tribe.
