Tinsel Town’s top stars like Jacqueline Fernandez, Yo Yo Honey Singh, Katrina Kaif, Ranveer Singh and many more would be adding glitter to the ceremony along with TBC who have never performed in India before, said a media release from Ferriswheel Entertainment which has bagged the rights to stage the ceremony on April 8.
“Ferriswheel is all set to put together a mad cricket party which will enliven the spirit of cricket. For the first time ever, India will see a 360 degree experience of seamless graphics and projection and state of the art technology - all in one show,” according to the release.
