Katy Perry goes desi for maiden India performance
IANS [ Tue, Apr 3, 2012 ]
- Chennai, April 3 (IANS) International pop icon Katy Perry went desi chic with a blingy choli, maang tika and bindis for her maiden performance in India at the star-studded opening ceremony of the fifth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) here Tuesday night.
Perry, 27, was the star attraction at the glittery event, held at the YMCA Grounds to kickstart the cricket extravaganza.
She sang "Teenage dream" to the packed audience, already smitten with performances by Amitabh Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor, Salman Khan, Prabhudeva and Colonial Cousins.
She refrained from exposing too much for the Indian audience, but managed to add zing to her outfit by wearing almost transparent, pink-coloured lowers with sequined work. Her make-up was truly desi with bindis set above both her eyebrows, like that of an Indian bride.
Her international back singers too carried the Indian flavour by flaunting saris.
