Summary: 'Simple Superstar' is the story of Wilbur Sargunaraj, an ordinary man from rural India. Wilbur dreams of succeeding as a famous musician, but day-to-day life in India is full of barriers and expectations that force him to debate giving up on his talents. An encounter with some new friends encourages Wilbur to take a chance on his own dreams. Armed with his own special musical genre, his unashamed love for dancing and different cultures, Wilbur travels with his friends through rural India. The journey is filled with joy and humor, dance and great multicolor sounds of 'Indo World Fusion'. This isn't Bollywood, it's Wilburwood - and it's an India you've never seen before! Wilbur's adventure continues as he steps beyond his native Tamil Nadu. Through heartbreak and joy, Wilbur discovers what success really is and shows that upper class and lower class aren't important, but everyone can be First Class! He and his friends find beauty in seemingly unlikely places on this journey that will change their lives forever. This is a comical, philosophical tale about following your dreams and your heart while remaining true to yourself. Wilbur's simple smile might be smarter than one would realize as he quietly addresses social problems, like class and racism, that he encounters. Wilbur finds and celebrates the beauty of India, joy in the simple things, and the value of relationships.
