New Delhi: International pop sensation Justin Bieber is ready to fly down to India for his Purpose Tour and the buzz around his arrival is coming in from all the corners. After reports of the extravagant arrangements being made for the singer, the rumour has it that Bollywood bigshots Shah Rukh Khan or Salman Khan might turn hosts for the lad.
Yes! That's exactly what you read. IANS quoted a source as revealing that leading industrialist Mukesh Ambani is also in the list of possible hosts to the 23-year-old singer, who will perform here on May 10.
However, the final host will be decided when Bieber lands in India.
Sources state that there is a tie for the opening act of the concert between the teams of upcoming films 'Half Girlfriend' and 'Meri Pyaari Bindu'. The makers of both the films want to promote their film at the concert before Bieber takes to the stage but both the production houses want to be the exclusive film promotion partner.
Interestingly, the films have actresses who have showcased their singing talent in the past. While actress Parineeti Chopra stars in "Meri Pyaari Bindu", Shraddha Kapoor plays the lead role in "Half Girlfriend".
Despite their singing skills, sources say that the clause of no live act is posing a problem in the decision making process.
While that is yet to be decided, the organisers have confirmed that actress Jacqueline Fernandez will be hosting the Ultra Lounge for her celebrity friends at the concert.
Her guestlist includes the likes of Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Karan Johar, Gauri Khan, Manish Malhotra and Kangana Ranaut.
Bieber will arrive in India on May 8, 2017, for his Jio Justin Bieber Purpose World Tour, organised by White Fox India.
