It was an evening full of glitz, glamour and sheer entertainment as Bollywood’s superstar Salman Khan gave a power-packed performance in the capital on Sunday through his ‘Da-Bangg’ tour.
Salman was joined by a host of stars such as Sonakshi Sinha, Prabhudheva, Kriti Sanon and Maniesh Paul for the tour held at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, which saw thousands of Bollywood fanatics coming to the event to catch a glimpse of their favourite stars.
The event, organised by Red Rocks Entertainment,Abegan with the performance by actress Daisy, who was introduced on stage by the host of the evening Maniesh Paul. Daisy, who made her Bollywood debut in 2014 in Salman starrer “Jai Ho”, danced on numbers like “Tu isaq mera” and “Tere naina”.
Up next was Delhi-based actress Kriti, dressed in an all white and silver ensemble, who danced on songs such as “Manma emotion”, “Main tera boyfriend” and “Sweety tera drama”. Prabhudheva and Sonakshi performed on numbers like “Urvasi”, “Chinta ta ta Chita chita”, “Nacha farate” and “Govinda”.
Moments before Salman came on the stage, a popular dialogue by him — “Swagat Nahi Karogay Humara” played and the crowd welcomed him with loud cheers, claps and whistles.
The 52-year-old star’s performance started with “Oh oh jane jaana”, post which he shook-a leg-on peppy numbers like “Mujhse shade karogi”, “Garam chai ki pyali ho”, “Munni Badnam”, “Prem ratan dhan payo” and “Swag se swagat”.
After his performance, Salman addressed the crowd and said: “Namastey, Salaam Alaikum, Kem cho… Kya haal hai Delhi? (How are you Delhi). Good evening, thank you is swagat ka bahut bahut shukriya (thank you for this warm welcome). Aajkal kya kehete hai? ‘Swag se swagat’ ka bahut bahut shukriya.”
But what caught the interest of many was Salman singing live.
He sang numbers such as “Humko maloom hai”, “Teri meri”, “Dil deewana”, “Main hoon Ahero tera” and “Jag ghoomiya”, where he did the hook step of the number.
The crowd was full into the performance and even sang along to the lyrics, while some were seen grooving as the “Sultan” star performed.
The finale saw Sonakshi, Salman, Prabhudheva, Maniesh, Kriti and Daisy dancing together on “Selfie le le re”. As soon as they started dancing, a dekko of colourful laser lights, streamers and fireworks covered the entire ground.
The “Wanted” star thanked Delhi Police for the support before concluding the event.
“This show wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the Delhi Police,” he said.
This was Salman’s maiden performance with the Da-Bangg tour in the capital. Previously, he has taken the Da-Bangg tour to international locales like London, Hong Kong, Melbourne and Auckland.
