It was a heady concoction of entertainment and glamour as some top Bollywood stars including Amitabh Bachchan and American pop star Katy Perry enthralled the spectators during the glamorous opening ceremony of the fifth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the YMCA Ground on Tuesday.

Bachchan started the evening in his signature baritone with a poem written by ad-man turned lyricist Prasoon Joshi. Making his first appearance after undergoing an abdominal surgery, the 69-year-old recited 'Janam Yadhi Phir Se Mile' while dancers from the renowned Shiamak Davar troupe danced to the words of the poem.

Bachchan's performance was followed by Colonial Cousins, DJ Ravi Drums and South African percussionist group 1st Project, who left the spectators and the cricketers in awe.



The legendary actor then led all the nine captains to sign the MCC Spirit of the Game pledge.

But what left a long lasting impression were the performances by Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor and Salman Khan. Priyanka mesmerized the crowd as she went up in the air during her performance, and also made cricketers Doug Bollinger and Harbhajan Singh had a little jig with her.

She started her act dancing to the tune of 'Aaj Ki Raat' and followed it up with another power-packed performance on 'Dhan Tanaa' from the film KAMINEY. PC also made some of the players of the Chennai Super Kings, including Mahendra Singh Dhoni dance to the hit Tamil song 'Nakka Mukka'.

Kareena then set the stage on fire dancing to the tune of 'Chammak Challo' and 'Dil Mera Muft Ka', from her latest film AGENT VINOD. But what drew a lot of applause was when she danced to 'Pyaar Ki Pungi'.

Salman Khan performed on fusion of 'Dabangg' title track, 'Love Me Love Me' from WANTED, 'Dinka Chika' from READY.

Director/choreographer Prabhu Deva also performed some Michael Jackson moves and dished out some of his favourite moves from 'Main Aisa Kyun Hun' from LAKSHYA and 'Tera Hi Jalwa' from WANTED.
