Kareena Kapoor at IPL Opening Ceremony 2012

It was pleasure to see Kareena Kapoor in her pungi style.  People have not even got our from her film fare 2012 appearance. She is  giving all her attitude at every event. See here:


The fifth edition of the Indian Premiere League may be under a money crunch with sponsors contemplating pulling out of the event, but that didn’t stop the organisers from putting forth a big-ticket opening ceremony on Tuesday. That, however, was no saving grace — lacklustre performances and the typical Bollywood lineup, inspite of the presence of American pop star Katy Perry, spoilt it for them.

While industry sources say Perry was paid over R7.5cr for her performance, she was also put up in a royal suite in a top five-star. Kareena was flown in on a private jet from Bangkok, a to and fro trip that reportedly cost no less that R20 lakh. Salman and Big B pocketed around R3.5 crore and R2 crore respectively, while Kareena and Priyanka reportedly took home about R1.5cr each.

The organisers of the ceremony, Wizcraft Entertainment, are tight-lipped about the total cost of the event, but its director Sabbas Joseph says, “It was not much of an expenditure … It is the largest cricketing event in the world and it has to have all the razz matazz. It is on the right track.”

He adds: “It’s just that this time, it looked larger than life.” Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt is not surprised. “IPL’s always been more about spectacle than sport. It is entertainment and not cricket,” he says.
