Bollywood Magic to light up Mumbai Metro 2B 

Led by the dynamic Mumbai BJP President and MLA, Adv Ashish Shelar, the ambitious Mumbai Metro 2B project will soon see the light of day. But in keeping the spirit of Mumbai, it will have Bollywood elements as it aims to celebrate the rich history of Indian cinema along the stretch from ESIC Nagar to Bandra. Picture this: 355 pillars serving as canvases for vibrant tributes to Bollywood’s iconic moments and legendary personalities.   

Get ready for a dazzling journey through the glitz and glamour of Bollywood as Mumbai’s Metro Line 2B gears up for a stunning transformation. Imagine stepping into the underground world of Indian cinema, where every pillar tells a story, and every station beams with the spirit of Bollywood. 

The spark for this cinematic marvel arose during a recent site inspection in Bandra West, where Adv Ashish Shelar, alongside officials from the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), visualized turning the bustling locale into a cultural hub. With iconic spots like Band Stand, Mount Mary, and the historic Bandra Fort, the area echoes with Bollywood’s rhythm. 

But this initiative is more than just a visual treat; it’s a journey through time, tracing Bollywood’s evolution from its beginnings in 1913 to its global prominence in 2023. MMRDA has roped in Bollywood experts to craft a master plan that will capture the essence of this remarkable journey, utilizing cutting-edge technology to bring the narrative to life. 

The project promises to be an immersive experience, with idea focused installations transporting visitors into the heart of iconic films and studios. But it’s not just about passive admiration; the project envisions a bustling “Happy Street” program every Sunday, where locals and tourists alike can participate in film promotions, cultural events, and more. 

In time, this initiative will not only add to Mumbai’s allure, but also become a beloved landmark for residents.
