Latin pop sensation Ricky Martin, who is in Jaipur to perform at a wedding, went on a sightseeing tour and enjoyed visiting the historic sites of the city. Martin is to sing at the wedding of Mumbai-based industrialist Neeraj Raja Kocchar's son.
The industrialist, who deals in metal, has booked a suite for Martin at the Le Meridien Hotel. "Ricky Martin and his 35-member troupe arrived Wednesday night by a chartered plane and drove straight to the hotel," sources close to the industrialists' family said.
The pop star performed at the hotel premises on Friday evening. His visit was kept under wraps and Le Meridien has been turned into a virtual fortress, with several security personnel deployed.
On Thursday, the star of Livin' La Vida Loca fame took time out to go on a sightseeing tour and visited Hawa Mahal, City Palace and Jaigarh Fort. "He was quite fascinated to see these places," a source said.
Indian pop singer Sukhbir and Bollywood choreographer-director Farah Khan are also slated to be part of the three-day lavish wedding function.
