Disha patani and Amy Jackson to Perform at IPL 2017 Opening Ceremony

 

 

Actress Disha Patani who made a clean sweep this award season, for her performance in the blockbuster MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, made headlines when she was cast opposite cinema legend Jackie Chan in the international film, Kung Fu Yoga.

Disha Patani will be performing for the first time at the Indian Premier League (IPL) on April 8 at Indore. She informs, “Who wouldn’t want to perform at such a high octane event? When they approached me, I just couldn’t say no.

Disha said, “Who wouldn’t want to perform at such a high octane event? When they approached me, I just couldn’t say no. It’s going to be amazing to be performing before IPL kicks off in the city of Indore! It’s gonna be one hell of an experience performing in front of a massive audience. I believe I should go all out and give them the best, hence I am choreographing my own songs. I will be performing to a mix – Kings XI Punjab theme song, ‘Kaun tujhe’, ‘Chull’, ‘Laila’ and ‘Befikra’. But I’m excited to be performing in front of a huge crowd. It’s gonna be one hell of an experience performing live.”

Amy Jackson has been approached for a six-minute solo performance at the IPL opening ceremony in Hyderabad tomorrow.

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.
