After jumping back and forth between who’s on the tour, who left, and who joined, Wizcraft announced the two latest performers for the Bachchans’ mega-world tour.
Akshay Kumar and Preity Zinta are the two latest additions to the Unforgettable Tour – “Experience the Magic” which will commence in July 2008 and will hit 6 continents spanning 18 countries. With over 80 films to date, Akshay Kumar’s presence on the tour is well suited due to his recent box office successes Namaste London, Bhool Bhulaiyya, Heyy Babyy, Welcome, and the upcoming Tashan. Akshay was very pleased to be part of the tour saying, “I am elated to be on The Unforgettable Tour that will reach out to millions of Indian Cinema fans across the world. Touring with Wizcraft and Amitji, I believe that fans will be in store for a great journey of Indian Cinema and all the energy and excitement it has to offer”. The tour will give him the opportunity to perform songs from his forthcoming Singh Is King.
Preity Zinta was just as happy to join the tour stating, “It’s indeed an honour to be a part of a show of such a great scale and caliber and to be onstage with the Bachchans and others. It is always a delight to reach out to our fans and be a part of the tour, I intend on doing just that”.
About the tour, a Wizcraft Director said, “I am delighted and honored that both Preity and Akshay have joined the Tour. The Tour is shaping up and promises to be one of the biggest and grandest world tours from India, bringing alive the magic of Indian cinema, on stage. In addition, we will have dazzling performances by the idols of Indian cinema- Amitabh Bachchan, superstar of the millennium, Abhishek Bachchan, hottest youth icon and Aishwarya Rai, one of the world’s most beautiful women, the multitalented Riteish Deshmukh and many more.”
The organizers of Wizcraft are presently in Canada & USA finalizing tour dates and venues. As we hear more information, we’ll keep you updated!
