Durban is in for some real Bollywood flavour when stars including Shah Rukh Khan, Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra will groove to their hit numbers on January 9 at an event to celebrate 150 years of India-South Africa friendship.
The concert, which aims at bringing together the world of cricket and entertainment on a common platform, will be hosted by Anil Kapoor.
This friendship concert is an initiative by AAMEDIA, a South African corporate, and Cricket South Africa. It is being directed and executed by Wizcraft International Entertainment and Cineyug Productions.
"Wizcraft has had a very warm and welcoming relationship with South Africa. The second IIFA Weekend and Awards were held in Sun City in 2001 and we returned for the fourth edition of the same in 2003 in Johannesburg forging a strong relationship between the two countries," Wizcraft director Sabbas Joseph said.
The event will be held in commemoration of the arrival of the first Indian labourers in 1860 to work on the sugarcane plantations in South Africa.
The concert will also honour Sachin Tendulkar and Makhaya Ntini – two great stalwarts of cricket from India and South Africa respectively.
Several South African artistes are also scheduled to perform at the event, including Liquideep, Locnville, Drum Cafe, HHP, and 1st Project.(IANS)
