Mumbai, April 2 (IANS) The “Unforgettable” concerts in July that will see the Bachchan clan of Bollywood perform live across Europe and United States has new glamour quotient. Saif Ali Khan, Shahid Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit (Nene) will join Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan, son Abhishek and daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai at different venues across Britain and the US, a source close to the family said.
Riteish Deshmukh, Bipasha Basu and Akshay Kumar are also part of the entourage.
“Saif and Shahid showed absolutely no hesitation in joining the Bachchans on their tour. The price being offered was fine and the dates for venues where they’ll perform also worked out to their convenience. As for Madhuri, it would be the easiest thing in the world to join the Bachchans for the concerts in the US because that’s where she lives,” the source said.
Lara Dutta had opted out of the concert earlier. “There’s much more to her sudden withdrawal from the concert than a painful knee,” a source said, without elaborating further.
