Jennifer Lopez to perform at IPL inaugural ceremony

Shahrukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment has been assigned to arrange the inaugural function of IPL 6 and he has roped in American actor-singer Jennifer Lopez to perform at the IPL inaugural ceremony along side Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra and Shahrukh Khan himself.

As per tradition, KKR owners Shahrukh Khan and Juhi Chawla will host the ceremony. “We have Jennifer Lopez. Apart from her, there will be our (desi) superstars,” Juhi was quoted as telling a national daily. Asked about SRK’s performance, Juhi said, “Ek to ghar ka jo hai, unko to dance karayenge hi (the one from our own country will obviously be made to dance). Deepika (Padukone) and Katrina (Kaif) will also be there.” The opening ceremony will be held at Salt Lake stadium in Kolkata. Minister Madan Mitra said that that there is no problem organizing the event at Salt Lake stadium as no matches are scheduled before and after the programme.

"We are delighted to have tied up with Red Chillies Entertainments Pvt Ltd, which has a proven track record of organising and executing events on a grand scale," IPL Chairman Rajeev Shukla said.

"The Opening Ceremony of the Pepsi IPL 2013 will be one of the most spectacular events ever witnessed, in keeping with what will follow in the tournament itself, over the following seven weeks," he said

The Pepsi IPL 2013 will kick-start from April 2 and end on May 26.
