Leading toy manufacturer and distributor Spin Master Toys UK have joined forces with entrepreneur Shameen Jivraj to launch the first-ever Bollywood dolls. The dolls will be sold in the UK under the brand name 'Bollywood Legends'. The first four 'Bollywood Legends' are Shahrukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Kajol and Priyanka Chopra.
Jivraj, who came up with the concept four years ago said: "I became intrigued by Bollywood a little while ago and was drawn into the movies with their mix of fun, fashion, music and dance. It's such a magical and emotive arena and I wanted to create something that would allow the audiences to be able to take some of that magic home to treasure and enjoy in a unique and new way."
The 12-inch dolls have been meticulously crafted, with attention paid to every detail, from their outfits and their expressions, right down to Shahrukh Khan's famous S-curved eyebrows.
