Imagine this: Bollywood super stars Shah Rukh Khan , Pitbull, Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif dancing together to the tune of “give me everything tonight”.
No, it wasn’t one of your midnight dreams. It was a dream-come-true at the Yuba Bharati Kirangan on Tuesday. Terming the IPL opening ceremony a ‘gala’ would be an understatement.
It was madness personified as some of the best known Bollywood stars descended here to signal the start of the sixth edition of the IPL.
Excitement was writ large on the face of every performer and it came as no surprise that the 50,000-odd energetic spectators present too matched the performers, cheering them on from the word go. It was a night when the Kolkata culture got as much prominence as the global appeal of the IPL.
