Akshay, Urmila, Manisha to perform at Bollywood Awards

Akshay Kumar, Urmila Matondkar, Dino Morea and Manisha Koirala will head the list of artistes to perform at the ‘Bollywood Awards’ nite being held in Port of Spain, Trinidad, West Indies on June 10, 2006. It can be noted here that it has been misreported in a section of the media that Shah Rukh Khan would be part of this event. SRK had performed in the West Indies seven years ago, and is not a part of the Awards nite this year.

The ‘Bollywood Awards’ which would be held at the Center of Excellence Auditorium in the Port of Spain is expected to draw a crowd of 6000 at the venue. Awards in various categories will be presented by the who’s who of West Indies. It can also be mentioned here that Karisma Kapoor , who was going to be part of the performances at the event earlier, had to opt out due to ill health (jaundice), while Manisha Koirala has replaced her to perform an ethnic song sequence specially incorporated to further glamorize the evening.

Presented by Tony Maharaj and organized by AIM India (partnered by Chunky Pandey and Abhijit Chowdhary), the ‘Bollywood Awards’ nite will also see veteran actors Rajesh Khanna and Zeenat Aman being honoured for their outstanding contribution to Indian cinema.
