Aditya Chopra Extends An Invitation To Everyone For DDLJ's Broadway Performance Come Fall In Love: Introducing The Globe To Indian Culture

Come Fall In Love by Aditya Chopra, It is a broadway-bound musical. It addresses the need for cross-cultural harmony in a world that is becoming more poisonous and polarized. In a world that is becoming more and more divisive by the second. It is about celebrating inclusivity and variety. It is about the celebration of love and how it can bridge differences between people from different cultures. Aditya Chopra discusses his intention to "create a vision of many cultures coming together in a story. That celebrates love" in a statement about Come Fall In Love. It is scheduled to premiere at The Old Globe in San Diego on September 14.

 
Aditya Chopra says “I first conceived the story of DDLJ (even before it was called DDLJ) as a Hollywood love story of a white American man and an Indian woman. My main motivation at that time was to present Indian culture and values to a global audience. Years later, as I reimagine the story as a Broadway musical, my mainstay is still the same. showcasing Indian culture to a world audience. And the most powerful way to depict a country’s culture and values is to see it from the perspective of someone who does not belong to the same culture. That is the starting point of Come Fall In Love, the story of Indian Simran, her culture and heritage through the eyes of American Roger.”
 
There are many firsts for India and Indians in Come Fall in Love. Aditya Chopra makes his Broadway debut as a director, a first for the nation of India. Additionally, it is the first Broadway production of a Bollywood musical.
