Bieber fever rises with a Kof­fee cuppa on the ta­ble

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Cana­dian singer Justin Bieber (left), who per­forms in Mum­bai to­mor­row, will ap­pear on Kof­fee with Karan, ac­cord­ing to a source. The sixth sea­son of the TV chat show, hosted by film­maker Karan Jo­har (right), will be un­veiled with this in­ter­view, adds the source.

Kof­fee with Karan has pre­vi­ously in­ter­viewed top Bol­ly­wood stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Cho­pra. “This is the first time an in­ter­na­tional celebrity of Bieber’s stature will be [on] an In­dian chat show,” said the source.

Karan has held dia­logues with or hosted in­ter­na­tional celebri­ties be­fore, among them ac­tors Richard Gere and Hugh Jack­man, ten­nis champ Maria Shara­pova and de­signer Chris­tian Louboutin, but those weren’t for his TV chat show.

Mean­while, the Bieber frenzy is spread­ing in Mum­bai to­day. To­mor­row’s con­cert, at the DY Patil Sta­dium in Navi Mum­bai, will be at­tended by some 50,000 Beliebers.

Se­cu­rity is nat­u­rally su­per­tight. While the ring of se­cu­rity clos­est to Bieber is be­ing han­dled by ac­tor Sal­man’s Khan body­guard Shera, the gen­eral se­cu­rity ar­range­ment for the con­cert has Navi Mum­bai Po­lice on their toes. The po­lice will mon­i­tor ve­hi­cles on the Mum­bai-Pune Ex­press­way on the day of the con­cert.

Po­lice­men will be de­ployed at var­i­ous en­try and exit gates. The or­gan­is­ers have en­gaged private se­cu­rity agen­cies, but the po­lice will be on high alert, too. At the show, plain­clothes po­lice per­son­nel will keep an eye on the go­ings-on. A po­lice con­trol room will be set up at the venue.
