Talking to the reporters, Ashok Kheny said that 500 actors from across the country will be in Bangalore in one place, which is a proud moment for Karnataka. Folk artistes from all the cities of Karnataka will showcase the diversity of our state. Singers Sonu Nigam and Vijay Prakash will also perform on the event.
According to the industrialist, Bollywood actors like Salman Khan and Aftab Shivdasani are coming to Bangalore a day earlier. Excited Ashok Kheny has planned to have the actors' parade across the ground. “We"re also going to get all the actors to go on a parade across the ground so that the fans can have a closer look at them," the DNA quotes him as saying.
Meanwhile, Ashok Kheny has also decided for a felicitation ceremony for Javagal Srinath and Anil Kumble. “Everyone ignores them. We want to ensure that Gen Next knows them and their contribution," the DNA reports him saying. "They"ve helped us through the preparations in a big way," adds Kheny.
