"I have performed here before in the UK but it's been a long time and I have wanted to come back again and perform," explained the Raaz 3 star.

"Thankfully to Naz and his team they came with this amazing offer that I can come back to the UK and perform with my favourite audience.

"The UK has supported me a lot. The kind of fan-falling I have is amazing and the support has been fantastic over the years.

"It was new this time because of a different kind of choreography; the themes are different and very fresh."

Malaika Khan said that she was eager to return to the UK stage after a long hiatus.

"It's been eons since I have performed in the UK and it's always a pleasure to be back," said Khan.

Shaan
"Places like Birmingham and Manchester and London are fun. I'm really excited to be performing at the O2. The last time I was at the O2 was to watch [Justin Bieber] perform, and to actually perform on that stage will be a Mecca of all sorts.

"We have got lots of new dance moves and it's going to be exciting and we hope to see all here."

The stars will be performing at the LG Arena in Birmingham on April 5 and at the O2 in London on April 7 supported by the Bollyflex dancers.

Singer Shaan said: "O2 is a great venue and I'm excited to perform here. Last time I was here was at the Royal Albert Hall.

"This is especially special because of the line-up. I have performed with Atif in Dubai. This is something new for all us and something we haven't done before and something that I'm looking forward to."

Atif Aslam
Atif Aslam, who performed at the O2 for the Dhamaka concerts last year, said: "This is the second time performing at the O2 and I'm in love with the audience here. Manchester and Birmingham have been fantastic over the years.

"Performing with such big stars, I am really excited. I am planning on bringing Bipasha on stage to one of my songs if she allows me to! I have been a big fan of Malaika Arora too. I'm looking forward to the shows."

Basu described the shows as a unique combination of music, performance and dance.

"To be in a show which has got an interesting mix of talent with singing, dancing, performance and entertainment, it was a show that I could not say no to, which is why all of us including myself are here.

"We are looking forward to the Birmingham and London shows and seeing the turn-up, and hope the audiences enjoy the work that we have done."
