They will present Bollywood show "Passage to Bollywood", which consists of a varied mix of Bollywood songs.

Combining old and new philosophies of movement, NIDT brings modern Indian Bollywood onto the theatre stage. Dancers combine a strong Western dance technique with like ancient Indian dance, yoga, meditation and the like to create the feel of a Bollywood movie in a live setting.

Lobo, known to bring a cinematic feel to his stage productions, will be visiting for the third time and is excited.

"There are a lot of companies promoting Indian traditional dance overseas but none that represent modern Navdhara's aim is to help overseas audience connect with the more modern part of One that is contemporary, now and truly global," he said in a statement.

"I love and the people. Also love the food, history....I would like to tell all Turkish people to come and see 'A Passage to Bollywood' and taste a slice of India. It is a fiction story that is based on every village child's dream to go to the big city and become successful. The story could be a real-life story - it unfolds very differently though," he added.

NIDT will perform at Culture Park Open Air Theatre on July 4.
