Jennifer Lopez, Katrina Kaif to perform at IPL 6 opening ceremony
The latest season of the Indian Premier League will be opened by Jennifer Lopez, Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif in Kolkata on April 2, according to reports in India.
The opening ceremony for IPL6 is to be held at the Salt Lake Stadium and Katrina will perform in the event, which will be organised by the company of Kolkata Knight Riders owner Shah Rukh Khan.
In a coup similar to the 2012 opening ceremony when Katy Perry wowed the crowds, Shah Rukh has reportedly secured the services of Jennifer Lopez to perform on April 2.
Other big names attending the ceremony include Deepika Padukone, Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra - the latter two aren't strangers to IPL opening ceremonies, having attended events in the past.
Bengal sports minister Madan Mitra told the Times of India: "The inaugural ceremony of the IPL 2013 will be one of the most spectacular events that the people in Bengal have ever witnessed."
This year's edition of the IPL runs from April 2 to May 26.
