SRK, Katrina, Deepika and Pitbull upped the glam quotient at the sixth edition of Indian Premier League opener in Kolkata

King of Bollywood Shahrukh Khan kept the audience mesmerised with his energetic dance performance at the glitzy and glamourous IPL 2013 opening ceremony in Kolkata.

SRK, as the megastar is affectionately called, made a grand entry to a Don track with an American chopper for company promising a ‘great time’ and a ‘party’ as laser beams cut through the arena lit in fluorescent and blue. He jived to Tumse milke with Main Hoon Na booming through the number that saw him doing the signature Qawwali steps.

Thanking West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and everyone associated with IPL, Khan broke out to a medley of Koi mil gaya and Ladki badi anjaani hai surrounded by a clutch of children in colourful gowns who lovingly kissed the superstar leaving bright pink lipstick marks.

Continuing the ‘party’, Khan grooved to Pitbull’s popular party anthem Hotel room that merged into rhythmic Afro beats of Chammak Challo. Giving the mixed audience a dose of nostalgia, SRK hit it off to Yeh kaali kaali aankhen and rounding it up with Criminal as he meandered onto the ground.

Leading Bollywood ladies Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone took to the stage prior to King Khan.

Flaunting off her toned physique in a shimmery black halter and leather pants with knee-length boots, Padukone broke onto the stage through a pictorial representation of her face. Shaking a leg to numbers like Sajday mein and Angrezi beat, she enlivened the atmosphere by stepping up to a medley of Yo Yo Honey Singh and Tumhi ho from the hit movie Cocktail.

Upping the glam quotient in a golden cape and headgear reminiscent of an Egyptian pharaoh, Katrina Kaif in her maiden performance in the city arrived grandly onto the ground, seated on an elevated moving platform. She showcased fluidity through her movements to Tera hone laga hoon as SRK’s voice boomed Jab Tak Hai Jaan‘s dialogues.

Audiences went wild as she stepped up to hits like Sheila ki jawaani, Touch me with a dash of Burn it up and Masha allah in a red harem and black blouse with pink trimming. She concluded her stellar performance with Lavani steps and music syncd to Chikni Chameli in a black ghagra with pink border.

Bappi Lahiri and Usha Uthup also performed on stage with SRK.

The IPL 2013 opening ceremony was organised by SRK’s film company Red Chillies Entertainment.
