IPL6 to open with a grand opening ceremony
IPL 6 is all set to open today with a grand opening ceremony. Promising to give a spectacular opening ceremony of the Indian Premier League in Kolkata, Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan said it would be an unprecedented experience for the country.
The Bollywood badshah said he would perform some of his songs at the nearly two-hour show to be staged at the Salt Lake stadium.
Shah Rukh said IPL and hindi mainstream cinema have various common qualities – “Excitement, suspense, tension, joy, heartbreak, and action”.
The Salt Lake stadium, mainly used for hosting football matches, has been decorated in a lavish way, which includes a mammoth-size stage for the opening show.
The opening ceremony will have cheerleaders, flying drummers, gymnasts, rhythm acrobats, stilt-walkers, air-tumblers and mass dancers coming together to entertain the audiences
