Suburban Turban is a great opportunity for emerging actors of all backgrounds, particularly actors of South Asian roots. The characters in ST are predominantly second generation Indian-American urban youth. As a Director, I want to bring some new faces to the screen and I look forward to beginning the casting process.
One of our leads in Suburban Turban is Ravinder Singh, a coming of age, Indian-American wannabe DJ hipster and tabla aficionado.
Our story is set against the backdrop of the Bollywood/Bhangra, Hip-Hop and Latina fusion music scene and there are some great roles for non-actors. We are looking to hear from DJ's throughout the US who're creating fusion music using Eastern influences such as Hindi-pop, Bhangra, Bollywood, Indian Classical, Middle-Eastern (including other sounds such as Taiwanese rock, African jazz, etc).
