Mumbai: After roping in the hottest stars of the industry to burn the stage with their stellar dance acts over the years, the world’s biggest viewers’ choice award - Zee Cine Awards 2012 is proud to announce that Bollywood’s “Silk”iest leading lady is all set to rock the stage at the glitzy ceremony in Macau this year. Following the announcements of SRK & Priyanka Chopra as hosts and Shahid Kapoor’s dancing tribute to Dev Anand, the latest addition to the glitzy star performers’ list will be the current darling of Bollywood – Vidya Balan!
After her universally applauded performance in this year’s runaway hit ‘The Dirty Picture’, Vidya’s oomph quotient has shot through the roof and the actress has been brought on board to raise a toast to India’s southern sirens at ‘Pan Bahar presents Zee Cine Awards 2012’. As Balan performs to a medley of chartbusters from southern cinema, her moves will bring out the unmistakable flavor and inimitable style of the dancers from south Indian cinema. Burning down the stage with the raunchy ‘Naka Muka’, Vidya will finish the performance with a flourish, shimmying to her own ‘Ooh La la, Ooh La La’ ditty.
“My performance this year at Zee Cine Awards 2012 will be inspired by the immensely entertaining styles of some of the most iconic southern sirens including Silk. Let’s hope the audience has as much fun as I do when I perform live at The Venetian® Macao!” said Vidya.
