Hundreds of hopefuls will line up Saturday for a chance to win the prize of a lifetime–a part in a Bollywood movie, and a chance at becoming the next big Bollywood star.

Bollywood Star, to air on OMNI Television next spring, is a talent search and four-part original docu-reality series that will bring six selected contestants to Mumbai to compete for a role in a Bollywood film.  Bollywood Boulevard host Veronica Chail stopped by Breakfast Television Friday morning to talk about the competition.

“[The judges] are looking for someone who’s just going to give them goosebumps on their face,” Chail said.  “Just have fun, and bring you best foot forward!”

Once contestants have been selected to go to India, they will participate in a “Bollywood boot camp.” It will all come down to one final audition in front of a Bollywood director who will crown Canada’s first Bollywood star.

Dozens showed up to the Vancouver auditions last week to prove their talent to the Canadian judging panel of filmmaker Richie Mehta and actors Anita Majumdar and Rupinder Nagra.   Auditions will be held in Toronto this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Toronto Congress Centre.
