Amy Jackson has been approached for a six-minute solo performance at the IPL opening ceremony in Hyderabad tomorrow.
Amy will dance to Tamma Tamma from the recently released Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan starrer Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Let’s Nacho and Kar Gayi Chull from Kapoor & Sons and Kala Chashma from Baar Baar Dekho. She is said to have also been approached to perform at the closing ceremony as well.
IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla announced on Monday that unlike past editions, the tenth edition will not exclude any fan from the celebrations as the league plans to host eight different opening ceremonies, one before the first home game of each franchise.
“It would be unfair to say it was my idea. All the members sat together and decided to have separate opening ceremonies across all the host cities to give the fans an opportunity to witness the opening of the 10th edition of the IPL live,” Shukla was quoted as saying in a report by Cricketnext.
“The various segments of the ceremony will be on our culture, the culture and tradition of the host cities as also highlighting the high points from the last nine editions of the tournament. We will also have performances from Bollywood stars, spirit of cricket signing, etc,” he said.
“We have just been told that the event shall be hosted between 6pm and 6:50 pm and that is all that we are aware of. We have not been told anything about the performers and what all can be expected in the show,” said a senior Karnataka State Cricket Association official.
“With Shah Rukh Khan, you never know if he will be part of an impromptu jig if he is present at the Eden Gardens. But as of now, Shraddha and Monali have confirmed their participation. We are very excited and hope to put on a great show,” a Cricket Association of Bengal official said.
The actress has also been approached for the closing show in the Telengana capital on May 21, but she’s yet to give her nod to it.
