Jennifer Lopez, Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina to open IPL 2013

Kareena Kapoor is in the wish-list to rock the stage at IPL 6 opening ceremony on April 2

The stage is set for the annual cricket extravaganza - Indian Premiere League.

Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif will perform during the opening ceremony of IPL 6 to be held at the Salt Lake Stadium, Kolkata on April 2.

Katrina seems to have become the chosen one as far as stage performances are concerned. Her back to back hits and firebrand item numbers ensured her this place.

The opening ceremony will be organised by the Kolkata Knight Riders owner Shah Rukh Khan's firm Red Chillies Entertainment.

According to reports, SRK has roped in Hollywood actress/singer Jennifer Lopez for the gala event.

Other big-league names from the B-town that's making the round are Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor and Deepika Padukone.

Priyanka and Kareena have already been part of the IPL opening ceremony in the past. As for Deepika, she had 'close ties' with the Royal Challengers Bangalore or rather the owner of RCB (remember the lip-lock with Siddharth Mallaya in the stands).

IPL has over the years attracted Bollywood stars in the funfare.

2012 opening ceremony saw Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor and American pop sensation Katy Perry add the glamour quotient.

There was no dearth of star power with Amitabh Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra, Prabhu Deva performing at the opening night.

So this year with all the big names surfacing and Katrina, SRK performing  some hot Bollywood numbers at the opening ceremony, J'Lo might just add a cherry on the cake.

We can expect a spectacular mix of razzmatazz and high-octane glittering ceremony which will set the ball rolling for the sixth edition of Indian Premiere League.

The Pepsi IPL 2013 will be played across the country from April 2 to May 26.
