Priyanka Chopra sizzles on stage at IPL-5 opening ceremony
Bollywood News: The IPL-5 opening ceremony which took place earlier this week in Chennai saw a lot of big names but the one person who truly set the stage on fire was Priyanka Chopra. Piggy Chops took the packed audience by surprise when she went up in the air during her performance.
Looking chic in a black and white sequined top, black pants and a red wrap-around skirt, the actress opened her act with her popular song ‘Aaj Ki Raat’. She displayed her sporty side as she was pulled up in the air with a harness for an aerial act on the Don tune.
The 29-year-old actress mesmerized the audience with her confidence, and landed on the stage for a power-packed dance on the number ‘Dhan Te Nan’ from the film Kaminey.
She moved around in the audience, and urged the front row members, including cricketers Sourav Ganguly and Harbhajan Singh, to dance with her. Bhajji, as the latter is lovingly called, was sporting enough to get up and join her for a jig.
Later, Priyanka took to the stage again to interact with the team-members of Chennai Super Kings including MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina.
She pulled Dhoni’s leg, and asked the boys to join her for a dance on the hit Tamil song ‘Nakka Mukka’.
The ceremony was opened by megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who rendered a soulful poem penned by lyricist Prasoon Joshi. It was followed by a performance by Colonial Cousins, after which Priyanka took centre-stage.
