Kylie Minogue dances as a baraati
Kylie Minogue kicked off her India visit dancing at an Indian wedding. Her hosts Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna granted the singer’s special wish to see a baraat and a dulha and took her along for pre-wedding ceremonies and the fesitivities of the main wedding night when Akki’s friend Vicky Oberoi’s sister got married on Thursday.
A source close to Akshay said he arranged for Kylie’s visit as soon as he heard her wish. As the actor was busy with rehearsals at the Film City studio, Kylie went with Twinkle. “She was casually dressed,” says a source present at the wedding. “It was a private affair, but Kylie was really enjoying it. She even danced to the dhol beats.”
Later at night, she met the cast of Blue — the film for which she is here — and tried on her costumes for the film. Akshay himself picked her up from the Renaissance Hotel, where she is staying in the Presidential suite, and she rehearsed with choreographer Farah Khan from morning to late afternoon.
“I have asked for the entire place to be embargoed during the rehearsal. She may meet anyone after or before this time,” says Blue director Anthony D’souza, talking about his plans of shooting with Kylie.
