It was expected to be a star-studded mammoth event. And that is how it turned out to be.
The big names of cricket including the incomparable Sachin Tendulkar and the flamboyant M.S. Dhoni mingled with the big names from the film industry including the Bollywood Badshah, Big B during the IPL inaugural function in Chennai.
Bollywood divas Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor charmed the gathering at the YMCA grounds in Nandanam.
Chennai's very own Michael Jackson, Prabhu Deva, who has come a long way since his choreographer days, had the crowd drooling, with his incredible dance performances. He performed to a medley of his popular numbers like “Main Aisa Kyun Hun…” from Lakshya (2004) and “Tera Hi Jalwa…” from Wanted (2009).
He even went down stage to interact with the audience, while shaking a leg.
