The five stars to rub shoulders on stage include: Shahrukh Kahn, Amitabh Bachan, Aamir Kahn, Aishwarya Rai and Preity Zinta.

These five have starred in over 200 of Bollywood's biggest blockbusters.

It's expected the 'From India with Love' shows will be seen by 115,000 people with the Hyde Park show raising a minimum of 250,000 for The Prince's Trust.

The shows will be a feast of dance, music and costumes on a grand scale.

The stars will perform alongside scores of dancers, musicians and extras in what will be a three-hour journey into the romantic world of Indian cinema.

The show will also bring together the full cricket team led by Aamir Khan from the Oscar nominated "Lagaan", who will perform the films' theme song live together. >
