Colombian pop star Shakira on Sunday left thousands of fans in this megapolis spellbound by her amazing intensity and boundless energy as she performed her maiden concert in India.
The three-hour concert all but left the fans hypnotised with the belly dancing moves of the Latino singing sensation at the MMRDA grounds in the Bandra-Kurla Complex in suburban Mumbai.
The Mumbai stopover is part of Shakira's "Oral Fixation" tour.
The concert, which was a huge sell-out, had several "firsts" for music concerts in India with a giant LED (liquid electronic displays) wall installed instead of the ordinary LCD (liquid crystal display) wall and superior lighting effects.
In another first in India, Shakira was carried by an Austin crane into the audience, there were ramps that came into the arena so that even crowds farthest from the stage got a close-up glimpse of her.
Besides belting out hits as "Hips don't lie", "Don't bother" and "Illegal" from her "Oral Fixation" album, Shakira also enthralled her Indian fans with performances from her hugely popular previous chartbusters "Whenever wherever", "Underneath your clothes" and "Objection tango".
