Lucknow, Jan 21 (): Bollywood actresses Katrina Kaif and Nargis Fakhri added glamour at the Hockey India League tournament’s inaugural ceremony at Dhyan Chand Stadium in Lucknow on Saturday morning. Katrina was the show stopper of the event.
Katrina chose an ethnic attire for her performance. She looked gorgeous in a red lehenga and red embroidered choli and was adorned with silver jewellery. Rock- star girl Nargis Fakhri also charmed the event with her sensuous performance. The entire show was choreographed by Shiamak Davar.
The inaugural show started with Nargis riding to the stage as she wavered and lip-synced to two songs from her introductory film Rockstar. She rocked the stage for about five minutes with her moves and a guitar that lit up the stage.
After the performance of Nargis at the stage in a more dignified speed, Shiamak Davar’s group presented a colourful fusion of varied dance styles.
Then, Katrina appeared on the stage amid huge cheers and performed for around 10 minutes. She twisted dance moves to two Bollywood hit numbers Sheila Ki Jawani and Mashallah before members of the hockey team joined her on stage for a small show.
The inaugural match was between Uttar Pradesh Wizards and Delhi Waveriders. The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and Sahara India Pariwar chief Subrata Roy graced the inaugural event with their presence. Politicians Naved Siddiqui, Abhishek Mishra and Rajendra Chaudhury were also present.
Akhilesh Yadav cheered the players and wished them good luck for the future matches. Around 8000 people were present at the ground to cheer up the teams.
Katrina was sharing company of Akhilesh Yadav and Sahara Boss Subrata Roy but Nargis remained away from spotlight.
After performing in Lucknow in the morning, Katrina flew back to Mumbai where she was scheduled to perform with Salman Khan at the curtain raiser event of Celebrity Cricket League season 3 later in the night.
