New Delhi: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan will not be performing at the Oct 3 opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games (CWG), organisers said Tuesday.
“Shah Rukh is definitely not performing at the opening ceremony. However, I don’t know if he is planning to attend the event or if he has received any invite from the organising committee. But he is not performing,” said Viraf Sarkari, director of Wizcraft International Entertainment. The opening ceremony of the Oct 3-14 mega sports event will be a melange of Indian dances and songs, said Sarkari. Wizcraft is behind the cultural evening at the event. Oscar winning composer A.R. Rahman will be performing a few songs, apart from the latest version of the CWG anthem. But the Bollywood quotient will take a back seat as India’s cultural heritage will rule the stage on D-day, added Sarkari. The opening ceremony will take place at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium. -IANS
