The Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani actor sizzled the stage at the opening ceremony of IPL 7, that was held in Abu Dhabi, but was she better than her competitors?

Shahrukh Khan and Virat Kohli are superstars in their own right. If there are two things people in our country are crazy about, then it’s cricket and films. It’s no big surprise that we have the Indian Premiere League that brings together India’s two favourites in a ‘cricketainment’ format.

She looked splendid and danced like a dream, but did she match up to Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra’s acts on the IPL stage? We let our readers decide that one, but here’s all the dope from Abu Dhabi. World’s best batsmen, Bollywood and big moolah made the IPL7 opening night very very starry. The seventh season of IPL was flagged off in Abu Dhabi today (April 16) with a glittering and entertaining opening ceremony, which saw Ms Padukone‘s sizzling dance. We’re sure with SRK and Dippy coming together we couldn’t miss their hit Yo Yo Honey Singh song from Chennai Express, Lungi dance hai na? Well, looking at the pictures, it certainly seems that Dippy’s mesmerising act was worth a watch.

Also joining the King of romance on stage was the dhak-dhak babe Madhuri Dixit Nene. As if competition from Madhuri wasn’t enough, Ms Padukone’s act is being compared to her competitors from B-town. So, cricketainment fans tell us if you thought that Dippy’s performance was more rocking than the other leggy lasses?
