Tonight, Kareena Kapoor will set the stage ablaze with her south Indian act. For her performance at the Apsara Awards, the actor will perform to a medley of chartbusters like Nakka Mukka (Kadhalil Vizhundhen), Ringa Ringa (Arya 2) and the latest, Kolaveri Di… (3).
The first of the aforementioned tracks was included in The Dirty Picture, and filmed on Vidya Balan. The last, sung by actor Dhanush, has become a rage across the country over the last few months. And the second track inspired Salman Khan’s hit, Dhinka Chika (Ready).
“It’s for the first time that Kareena will perform to such a mix. No other female actor has attempted an act with Kolaveri Di at a popular award show. She’s putting in a lot of hard work for her performance,” a member of the organising committee lets in.
“Today, cinema from across the board is becoming one. The idea is to present a unified face of Indian cinema without any tags attached. Kareena’s performance will show that we can cut across languages,” beams Sabbas Joseph of Wizcraft. “If a leading lady like her does something, it’s appreciated all the more. Kareena loved the idea when we approached her.”
Besides the Agent Vinod actor, Band Baaja Baraat’s leading lady Anushka Sharma will also perform to a host of songs along with TV actors. Her performance will include different dance forms like lezhim, hip-hop and Bollywood freestyle. Her co-dancers include Nandish Sandhu, Sushant Singh and Shabbir Ahluwalia.
Also, Ameesha Patel will present an act incorporating the recent item numbers like Chikni Chameli (Agneepath), Ooh La La (The Dirty Picture) and Madhubala (Mere Brother Ki Dulhan).
