Parramatta. Bollywood star to boost Eels' fans

Parramatta Eels’ boss, Paul Osborne, has travelled to India in a bid to increase the club’s membership and its financial standing. According to The Sydney Morning Herald, he has signed Bollywood star, Nandamuri Balakrishna, who will come to Parramatta to sell rugby league to the thousands of people of Indian heritage living in and around Parramatta. In the 2001 census, 3346 Indians resided in Parramatta. By the 2006 census, the number had increased to 7088, an increase of 111.8 per cent. Indian nationals are the second largest non-English speaking group, after the Chinese, residing in the Parramatta local government area. The majority lives in the Westmead-CBD-Harris Park area.
