Bollywood celebs like Anushka Sharma, Hrithik Roshan, Shahid Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar and Pritam will be performing at the opening ceremony of Indian Premier League. The gala affair will be apparently hosted by the Nawab of Pataudi, Saif Ali Khan.
Hats off to Anushka for being back on the cricket field. She was slammed for being in Sydney for the semi-finals of World Cup in which India lost. People had started saying that Anushka is ‘Panauti’ (bad omen) and because of her presence her boyfriend Virat Kohli couldn’t perform well and we lost the match. But, look at Anushka’s guts, the actress is now all set to be back on the field to perform on the opening night of IPL. Usually, when Virat is playing the match, Anushka plays spectator, but this time around the roles will have reversed! Anushka will be dancing and Virat will be watching her moves.
Let us tell you we are dying to watch Hrithik’s dance moves. The superstar is surely one of the best dancers of Bollywood and watching him perform is always a treat to sore eyes. From ‘Kaho Naa Pyar Hai’ to ‘Bang Bang’, Hrithik’s moves have always been fantastic. We are sure all of Hrithik’s fans will be glued to their TV sets at 7:30 pm today to watch him dance. We will also get to see another fantastic dancer of Bollywood, Shahid Kapoor’s performance tonight. Just like Hrithik, even Shahid’s moves are to die for. The actor who will be soon tying the knot will surely set the Indian Premier League stage on fire. Well, we also hope that we get to see Hrithik and Shahid on stage together.
Our very own rock star from ‘Rock On’, Farhan Akhtar will be also performing on the stage tonight. We can expect some great songs from Farhan. Music composer Pritam too, will perform tonight. But the highlight of the event will surely be Nawab Saif Ali Khan himself! We all know that Saif Ali Khan’s hosting skills are awesome and his sense of humour will make us ROFL while watching him host the event.
And then finally last but not the least, we can expect to see Shahrukh Khan, Preity Zinta and Shilpa Shetty attending the event as they are the owners of Indian Premier League teams like Kolkata Knight Riders, Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals respectively. So get ready for INDIA KA TYOHAAR!
