The first four actors will be launched, under the brand name Bollywood Legends, by toy manufacturer and distributor Spin Master Toys UK, along with entrepreneur Shameen Jivraj, who had come up with the concept four years ago. She recently approached Spin Master Toys UK to handle the UK distribution of the dolls.
Shameen has headed the 'Shiny Doll' development team as well as many other well-known children's brands such as Star Wars and Teletubbies.
She says, "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."
Amazon.uk is already taking orders for the doll. They are each priced at 24.99 pounds. They each weigh less than half a kilogram. Priyanka and Kajol wear saris while Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik sport trendy western outfits.UNI
