In 1970, “Freddie” Farrokh Bulsara, an Indian-British Parsi is studying art at a college in London while working as a baggage handler at Heathrow Airport. At night he often goes out with friends to listen to music. One night after a show at a pub, Freddie goes to find the band, Smile and notices an attractive young woman (Mary Austin) in the hallway. She tells him how to find the band: Outside, he compliments drummer, Roger Taylor and guitarist, Brian May on their performance. Learning that their lead singer, Tim Staffell just quit, Freddie offers himself as a replacement and demonstrates his vocal ability. Later Freddie goes to Biba and sees Mary. She approaches and helps him choose some clothes, complimenting him on his style. They become a couple and eventually move in together.
With the addition of Freddie as lead singer, and bassist John Deacon, the band play gigs across Britain selling out Unis and pubs. Freddie urges the band to think bigger and record an album. After selling their van, they book time late at night in a studio to produce their debut album. While recording with experimental sounds and techniques, an A&R rep from EMI watches them. He asks RT (Roy Thomas Baker) the sound engineer for demos. Soon, Freddie changes the band’s name to Queen and designs their logo. He also changes his name legally to Freddie Mercury.
