Bhubaneswar: Speculation is rife that Bollywood biggies Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Shahid Kapoor along with cricket legends Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Saurav Ganguly will attend the closing ceremony of the World Cup Hockey.
“We have sent across formal requests to a host of Bollywood stars and Indian cricketers for participating in the closing event. Many of them have accorded their consent while the rest are likely to commit by the first week of December,” a representative of the Sports and Youth Affairs Department said.
The state government is leaving no stone unturned to make the event a star studded affair. So far, Shah Rukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit, A. R. Rahman, Salman Khan and a few others have graced the World Cup.
