It’s still three months to go before Canadian pop star Justin Bieber comes on his maiden India tour and speculation about the participation of Bollywood stars has begun. Among the first names is of newly-turned global star Deepika Padukone. The actor is in talks to perform at the concert, which will take place at DY Patil stadium in Mumbai on May 10.
“Deepika is among the celebrities, who are keen to perform at the concert. A lot of big names are there but no one has been confirmed yet,” a source close to the development told indianexpress.com. Deepika’s involvement should not be a surprise with the actor recently making her Hollywood debut with Vin Diesel-starrer xXx: Return of Xander Cage. She was seen at Golden Globes after-party and made appearances on coveted US chat shows.
