It was rumoured that Shahrukh Khan would perform at the opening ceremony of the event on October 3 but the organisers confirmed that the actor, or any other Bollywood actor for that matter, would not perform.
Instead, Indian dance, songs and culture will be showcased at the CWG opening ceremony at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium. However, Oscar winning composer A.R. Rahman will be performing a few songs including the latest version of the CWG anthem.
