Indians in Qatar: Scheduled Shows

Five Indian shows are scheduled over the next six weeks. The first will see Indian musician Sonu Nigam performing at Khalifa tennis stadium on the first day of Eid. This will be followed by a three hour performance by Kerala mimic KS Pramad on the same day.

The next day will see a comedy and music show which will include a come back performance by singer Rimy Tomy, while on the 24th October singer S.P. Balsubramanium will perform in a musical at Doha Cinema. Doha Cinema will also also be the venue of a “Grand Indian Musical Evening”, which will feature two southern Indian singers, Vitup Pratap and Manjari Babu on November 9th.

Qatar has regular Indian shows, sometimes including top Bollywood stars. This is perhaps not surprising given its huge Indian population: Indians make up 20% of the population of Qatar.

Former Indian celebrities who have come to Qatar have included Salman Khan, while Karisma Kapoor - or Lolo - came to Qatar in January of this year to launch her Eros range of gold jewellery at Qatar's Gold Souq.
