Kolkata Knight Riders co-owner andBollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan today promised a spectacular and never-seen-before opening ceremony of the Indian Premier League 6 to be held at the Salt Lake stadium here tomorrow.

Before the start of the two-month long exhilarating cricket, the opening ceremony of IPL 6, described as the greatest show ever in India by the organisers, would stay true to its theme of cricketainment.

"The opening nite of IPL 2013 will be a spectacular ceremony, the likes of which India has never seen before," Shahrukh said.

"I will be performing to some of my songs. Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone, two of my co-stars, will also be there. Pitbull, the international rapper, will also thrill the audiences," he added.

The trio would perform to a medley of Bollywood chart-toppers after which Pitbull is expected to join them on the stage with some of his popular rap numbers.

Last year, American pop star Katy Perry had performed during the opening ceremony of IPL 5 in Chennai.

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.
