Mumbai: Actress Tamannaah Bhatia has said there is no better sports event than Indian Premier League (IPL) to perform for and she is excited about performing in the opening ceremony of the glamorous Twenty20 cricket tournament.
Tamannaah said this on Friday while interacting with the media before the final rehearsal for the opening ceremony of IPL on Saturday.
Tamannaah, who has performed in numerous award shows and stage tours, said performing in a stadium is completely different.
“Before this, I have never performed for a sports event and of course, when you are on a stage there is a certain feeling of nervousness and excitement. As a performer, the feeling to perform in a stadium and to feel the energy of the audience will be completely different.
“I am excited because there is no better sports event than IPL to perform for. We are all crazy about cricket and it’s the opening night,” said Tamannaah
Talking about her performance and the songs incorporated Tamannah said: “Mumbai, Chennai and Hyderabad feel like my own because I belong to all these cities. This time, my performance is going to be on four songs in four languages. There is Kannada, Telugu, Tamil and a Hindi song. So it goes out to pretty much the whole of India.”
When asked which team would she choose to support, the “Baahubali” actress said: “…Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is coming back after two years, it has Dhoni and I am a huge fan, so I am looking forward to seeing them play.”
Besides Tamannaah, Hrithik Roshan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Varun Dhawan will also be performing for the IPL opening ceremony on Saturday.
Tamannaah is currently gearing up for Kangana’s “Queen” remake titled “Queen Once Again”, being helmed by National Award-winning director Neelakanta.
