Mumbai: In spite of ‘Agent Vinod’ getting a lukewarm response at the Box Office, the film’s leading lady, Kareena Kapoor is much in demand. So much so that the organisers of IPL opening ceremony are going out of their way to ensure that Ms. Kapoor gets to attend the show in Chennai tonight.
Bebo has been shooting for a commercial in Bangkok for the past few days and has only a few hours to spare for IPL. As the shoot is not yet over, Bebo is required to be Bangkok after her performance at the opening ceremony.
Speaking to a daily, a source said, “So the organisers have decided to arrange for a chartered flight for her, which will fly her from Bangkok to Chennai. And then she will board the same flight to return to Bangkok to wrap the ad shoot.”
Bebo’s round trip is costing the organizers a whooping Rs 20 lakhs. But since the organisers are keen on getting her on stage, they perhaps don’t mind spending that much money.
“They are very keen on having Bebo onboard, and are making sure she is not inconvenienced in any way,” said one of Kareena’s spokesperson.
The actress is likely to perform on a medley of her hit numbers from ‘Bodyguard’, ‘3 Idiots’ and ‘RA.One’.
Along with Kareena, a bevy of stars including Amitabh Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra, Salman Khan and Pop icon Katy Perry will be performing at the IPL opening ceremony.
