KKR vs KXIP: Shraddha Kapoor to set ablaze Eden Gardens in venue's opening ceremony

Kolkata: Bollywood starlet Shraddha Kapoor is set to sizzle at the Eden Gardens as the city gears up to host its IPL opening ceremony before the start of the match between Kolkata Knights Riders and Kings XI Punjab tomorrow.

The program will be a fusion of Bengal's traditional chhau dance and Punjab's bhangra.

The 19-minute opening ceremony will take place before the match and commence with a performance by Shillong Chamber Choir.

The chhau dancers will introduce the KKR team, while KXIP will make an entry with the bhangra dance troupe in the third segment of the opening ceremony.

National Award winning singer Monali Thakur will also perform during the ceremony.

In the last segment, one-minute AV will display the two- time IPL champion team Kolkata's journey from 2008 while Shraddha Kapoor's six-minute performance will mark the conclusion of the opening ceremony.

This is the first time that there are eight opening ceremonies taking place across eight venues.
