Actress Sonakshi Sinha will perform at Grammy Award winner and global pop sensation Justin Bieber’s Purpose World Tour in May, she said on Monday.
The actress will perform as one of the opening acts at the highly anticipated gig, which will be held at the DY Patil Stadium on May 10.
“I am really fond of Justin Bieber’s music and I love how his sound has evolved over the years and today he reaches out to a universal fan base. I’m definitely looking forward to this event,” Sonakshi said in a statement.
The “Lootera” actress is currently working on a new single and intends to launch it at the Purpose Tour.
Arjun Jain, Director, White Fox India — the sole promoters of the tour, said: “We are looking at very innovative opening acts for the Bieber concert and we would love to have Sonakshi to be a part of it. It’s too preliminary to confirm anything but the discussions are underway.”
The 22-year-old Canadian singer-songwriter is expected to perform hits like “Where are you now”, “Boyfriend”, “Love yourself”, “Company”, “As long as you love me”, “What do you mean?”, “Baby” and “Purpose”.
Bieber’s latest jaunt is in support of his fourth album “Purpose”, wherein he has experimented with more exploratory electronic sounds.
Apart from India, the Asia leg of the tour comprises Tel Aviv in Israel and Dubai in the UAE.
On work front, Sona will be seen in “Noor”, playing the role of a journalist who wants to cover a real life incident, but is forced to go for a celebrity’s interview. Talking about the character, the 29-year-old actress said: “I have a lot of respect towards this profession. It is not an easy job to become a journalist. Hats off to all of you. For a journalist, it is his/her duty to ask any kind of question and as an actress, it is my prerogative to answer or avoid. Even fans ask weird questions. My regard for this profession has grown much more after doing ‘Noor’ and I will try to answer every question from now on.”
Sunhil Sippy has helmed “Noor”, which is a Bollywood adaptation of a Pakistani novel. The film is releasing on April 21.
