Deepika Padukone Won't Perform Live On Dum Maaro Dum During India-SA Match In Nagpur
The most awaited item number Dum Maaro Dum will be launched in front of 45,000 people at the India-South Africa match to be held in Nagpur. However, unfortunately Deepika Padukone won’t be performing live there.
Though Sippy wanted Deepika to perform on stage but the actress didn’t get enough time to practice for the dance as she was busy shooting for Aarakshan in Madhya Pradesh. Performing live in front of about 45,000 people is a big thing and lot of rehearsal is required for that.
A source said, "Unfortunately, Deepika Padukone is shooting for Aarakshan in Bhopal and doesn't have time to rehearse as she would land on same day in Nagpur. She expressed her regret as it would be very difficult for her to perform in front of a 45,000 plus crowd without any rehearsals. The song is extremely dance oriented and needs to be well orchestrated with a troupe of dancers."
Sippy said, "Well it would have been extremely exciting if she had had time to rehearse and perform live in front of the audience. It would have given the song new energy. But we understand and have decided to showcase the song during half time in the match. It's one of the most important matches we have."
