Patel shares his vision about the musical and its story:

We are going to take Bollywood musicals into mainstream American entertainment. We want to redefine Bollywood Musical Theater as a legitimate art form on par with famous Broadway plays by incorporating foot-tapping fast-paced Desi hit songs and dances into a heartwarming inspirational story- the best of Indian storytelling tradition presented in a live, accessible form for families from all backgrounds to discuss and enjoy.

This play is based on a universally inspiring story of how a child’s intrinsic character is formed by the care and example of parents and the bond between a father and child.This character emerges even in the absence of the parents, sometimes in the face of extreme adversity, and he may have to act larger than life, ignoring and suppressing his fears, to gain courage to laugh at hardships and win the struggle.

About the musical:

Thunder, like the ROAR of a thousand lions broke out in the sky and the blinding force of lightning struck the earth beneath. A great secret was hidden here. Evil was waiting with its greedy lustful eyes to lay its hands upon a Great Power, but the nearer it came, the farther it went. With utter disbelief and uncontrollable anger, Asura realized the truth – Mahaveer was still alive!!!

Mahaveer was born to one of the greatest kings the people had ever seen. His father was the guardian of the Secret and before he knew it, Evil began to play its brutal game. He was made to flee for his life and found himself alone in an unknown land . Will he survive as a nobody? Will he revoke his true identity? Will he challenge his past and accept what it brings? In his struggle, will he realize the real reason behind his birth… so that once again he can ROARRR.
