Plot: Christina Aguilera is a small-town girl with a big voice who follows her dreams to LA. After stumbling upon The Burlesque Lounge, a majestic but ailing theater, Ali lands a job as a cocktail waitress from Cher, the club’s proprietor and headliner. The outrageous costumes and bold choreography of Burlesque enrapture Aguilera, who vows to perform there one day. Soon enough, Aquilera builds a friendship with a featured dancer, finds an enemy in a troubled, jealous performer, and garners the affection a bartender and fellow musician. With the help of a sharp-witted stage manager and gender-bending host, Aguilera makes her way from the bar to the stage.
Indian Box-Office Expectations: Burlesque has been promoted rather poorly in India. As it is, the subject primarily appeals to select class audience in the metros of India.
