|Bollywood Stars spark IPL5 opening ceremony
Entertainment and glamour was at its best as some top Bollywood stars including Amitabh Bachchan and American pop star Katy Perry enthralled the spectators during the glamorous opening ceremony of the fifth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the YMCA Ground on Tuesday.
Bachchan started the evening in his signature baritone with a poem.
Bachchan's performance was followed by Colonial Cousins, DJ Ravi Drums and South African percussionist group 1st Project, who left the spectators and the cricketers in awe.
The legendary actor then led all the nine captains to sign the MCC Spirit of the Game pledge.
But what left a long lasting impression were the performances by Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor and Salman Khan. Priyanka mesmerized the crowd as she went up in the air during her performance, and also made cricketers Doug Bollinger and Harbhajan Singh had a little jig with her.
Kareena then set the stage on fire dancing to the tune of 'Chammak Challo' and 'Dil Mera Muft Ka', from her latest film AGENT VINOD. But what drew a lot of applause was when she danced to 'Pyaar Ki Pungi'.
Salman Khan performed on fusion of 'Dabangg' title track, 'Love Me Love Me' from WANTED, 'Dinka Chika' from READY.
Director/choreographer Prabhu Deva also performed some Michael Jackson moves and dished out some of his favourite moves from 'Main Aisa Kyun Hun' from LAKSHYA and 'Tera Hi Jalwa' from WANTED.
Priyanka apparently got upset when the cricketers voted for Kareena Kapoor's performance over hers.
Chennai batsman Suresh Raina and Mumbai team's Dinesh Karthik went gaga over Kareena's performance. Reportedly, Priyanka felt so bad about it that she did not even bother to meet Bebo backstage.
