Hrithik, Anushka in Kolkata for IPL opening


Kolkata, April 6: Bollywood actors Hrithik Roshan and Anushka Sharma arrived here on Monday, a day ahead of their much-awaited performance at the Indian Premier League (IPL) inaugural.

Hrithik, Anushka and Shahid Kapoor are set to enthrall spectators at the opening ceremony at the Salt Lake Stadium.

During the two-hour show, actor-director Farhan Akhtar will belt out songs with his band.

Actor Saif Ali Khan, Indian cricketing legend Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi's son, will host the show and introduce the cricketers and stars.

"Going 2 b nostalgic. Happy 2 return 2 where I started. Salt lake stadium. my 1st stage. the date 7th April. See you all at @IPL Opening Nite," the actor tweeted earlier.

Spotted in trendy casuals, Hrithik was soon surrounded by fans and shutterbugs upon his arrival at the airport here.
