The event was attended by many sportspersons and Bollywood celebs. These celebs included Mahesh Babu, AR Rahman, Yuvraj Singh, Irfan Pathan, Namrata Shirodkar, Neha Dhupia, Farah Khan, Huma Qureshi and others.
Besides the glittering presence of these celebs, the highlight of the event was the sportspersons dancing to the tunes of Farah Khan … quite literally.

Farah Khan recently was in the news because of her sassy reply to actor Siddharth, who will now be seen in ‘Indian 2’. Recently, amidst a 'selfie' chat in his car, Siddharth said, “I am feeling super emotional right now. I have just finished a 14-hour long gruelling shift for a dance number and I heard a lot of my followers and well wishers ask why I don't do a lot of song and dance numbers . The answer is that I am scared of dancing and in the last ten to fifteen years, I have very strategically veered away from song and dance in my movies”.
To which, Farah Khan cheekily commented on the video, saying that he needs to talk to her more often!
