Shahrukh Khan will perform in the grand finale with leading small screen actresses at the Global Indian TV Honours presented by Balaji while Lara Dutta will get jiggy with a couple of TV's male hotties.
The event will be held on February 1 at the Andheri Sports Complex.
It is learnt that SRK was first slated to perform with the 11 Chak De! India girls, but that didn"t work out.
Says a source, "The finale starts with SRK's solo performance and then moves on to his dance with 11 TV actresses. Shahrukh might even make an appearance as he did in his yesteryear soap Fauji.
The reason we are keen on having Shahrukh was because he began his acting career with TV, went on to become a megastar and last year came back to TV with Kaun Banega Crorepati."
Chloe Ferns from Balaji adds, "Shahrukh's act will be one to watch out for."
The actresses that will shake a leg with King Khan are likely to include Smriti Irani, Mona Singh, Navneet Nishan, Neena Gupta, Prachi Desai, Anita Hassanandani, Gautami Kapoor, Sakshi Tanwar and Rajshri Thakur.
On a high
The opening act features Ronit Roy cavorting with 50 female Brazilian dancers. Adds the source, "Ronit"s act will be atop a 60-feet high harness. There will be six acts; some of them will feature non-Balaji artistes like Sharad Malhotra and Smriti Jha.
Balaji is ensuring that that everything is done transparently. They didn't send in nominations as they are only a production house but Zee, Sony and Star Plus have sent their nominations. We have got 370 entries from all channels."
While Bunty Walia's GS Entertainment will script, direct and execute the show, Cineyug will script and direct SRK's act. Ganesh Hegde is King Khan"s choreographer with Inder calling the shots for the other acts including that of Nach Baliye winners Aamir Ali and Sanjeeda"s. Sajid Khan and Malaika Arora Khan will be the hosts. Karan Johar and Ekta Kapoor will be seen together on stage doing a Koffee with Karan chat show.
