Actress Deepika Padukone, voted FHM India’s sexiest woman in the world 2014, has established herself as one of the most successful and popular celebrities in India’s film industry. Her films Chennai Express, starring Khan in the lead, was one of the highest grossing flicks in 2013.

U.K. rapper Kanika Kapoor zoomed in on fame in India with Canadian adult movie star Sunny Leone’s item song in the film ‘Ragini MMS 2′.

The three to four-hour program will entertain Vancouver in a way never experienced before, Singh told Vancouver Desi. “There has never been a Bollywood entertainment show on this scale in Vancouver apart from the TOIFA,” he said.

A 130-strong cast and crew will be flown in for the event and will showcase state-of-the-art production, mind-blowing visuals and stunning costume changes.

The event is being organized by Verka Foods and DBR Entertainment in Vancouver, Singh said. SLAM extravaganza will then move on to San Jose on September 28.
