Watch SRK perform to Chammak Challo at Salt Lake stadium, as his wife Gauri Khan and children Aryan and Suhana look on. Also watch Pitbull, Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone on stage

Bollywood took centrestage at the Indian Premier League 2013 opening ceremony in Kolkata last night, with Shahrukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone performing to their hit Bollywood numbers.

SRK began with reciting a Rabindranath Tagore poem and then performed to the title songs of his films Main Hoon Na and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. The actor was in full form, as danced to his all-time chartbusting songs, right from the recent Chammak challo to Yeh kaali kaali aankhen from the beginning of his career.

Deepika shook a leg to tracks like Sajde mein, Tum hi ho bandhu and Honey Singh’s Angrezi beat de, among others. Katrina took to the stage after Deepika and turned up the heat with her item number Sheila ki jawaani.

Shahrukh’s family including wifey Gauri Khan and children Aryan and Suhana were right up there in the audience, cheering him, although wethinks the kids were a tad bored at times. The opening ceremony was definitely not as spectacular has SRK had promised.

Nevertheless, watch glimpses of Shahrukh and Pitbull’s performances in the videos below and tell us if you like them.
