CNN spoke with the promoter behind Justin Bieber’s show in Mumbai, India happening on May 10 who revealed what’s gone into bringing one of the world’s biggest pop stars to one of the world’s biggest countries for the first time. “We haven’t cut corners on this show,” Arjun Jain, Managing Director of White Fox India, explained. “In terms of ticketed events, this is the biggest show not only for my company, but in the history of India.” That must be why $4 million have gone in to making sure it happens.
“Everything he’s wanted we’ve made it available, except for a few things that weren’t available for which we got substitutes,” Arjun added. “We want to do certain things for him to make him like India,” Arjun said. “We’ve arranged sightseeing and a Maharaja sit-down dinner with different flavors of India because he loves Indian food. We wanted to host a couple of parties for him at celebrities’ houses and have got offers to host him there.”
