Shah Rukh Khan performs in London
While Bollywood has been expressing solidarity with London during the ongoing riots, a bunch of big names from tinseltown flew to the city to be part of a corporate event on Tuesday. Shah Rukh Khan was among those especially invited for the event, which took place at the O2 Arena on the bank of the Thames.
Besides SRK, Akon and former tennis player Boris Becker too attended as special guests. From Bollywood, names like Anushka Sharma and Ranbir Kapoor added more starpower to the evening, while AR Rahman, who is currently in London, also made a brief appearance. Akon’s DJ Benny-Demus, who is also good friends with SRK, joined them on stage for the performance.
A source tells us that the event was successful despite fear about fresh riots breaking out. We hear that Ranbir, who has been in London for a few days, couldn’t step out much, while SRK landed just a day prior to the evening.
Says our source, “Everyone was obviously worried, but the event was successfully concluded. A day before the show, a few artistes were tweeting about it and trying to gauge how bad the situation is, but things were okay. Shah Rukh even danced on stage with Akon and his lively presence peps up every event he is a part of.”
