Bollywood stars Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha enthralled a strong crowd of nearly 30000 at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata on Saturday night.
The two stars were in the city to take part in the pre-centenary celebrations of the East Bengal club. The two were given the life membership of the club and they were the star attractions of Starnite, an entertainment gala at the Salt Lake Stadium Saturday, organised by the club as part of its pre-centenary celebrations.
“30,000 people! The energy was electrifying and the stage was ablaze! Thanks for the love Kolkata!,” tweeted Sonakshi Sinha who played a Bengali girl in her film Lootera earlier this year.
Akshay Kumar, who has a special connect with Kolkata, wowed the crowd with his performance.
Later, he visited a place in Kolkata where he used to stay back in the 1980s.
“Took a small detour before leaving Kolkata today to visit this place where I stayed while I worked at a travel agency nearby, back in the day during 1983-84. Who knew back then what the future had in store...work hard and it all works out :)” Akshay Kumar tweeted.
