Set to be staged in India later this year, the show is set to become an annual event in both countries, with Bollywood directors said to be interested in taking the production to the big screen.

“Usually bilateral relations are focused on politics and business, but we want to introduce the exchange of culture too,” said Magdalena Crux Yabar from the Spanish Embassy in India.

“It is wonderful to see culture binding the two nations.”
