    ISLAMABAD: Reflecting the spirit of the current thaw in Indo-Pak relations , a 70-member Indian film artistes' team, led by Akshay Kumar and Shilpa Shetty, would perform in the Pakistani city of Lahore coinciding with the 15-day spring festival being celebrated there from next week.

    Considered as the largest Indian cine artistes' show in Pakistan in recent times, the Bollywood stars will arrive at the Royal Palm Golf Club in Lahore along with top singers and artistes to perform at the Concord-2004-India-Pak show on Feb 12, the club's Director Pervez Qureshi said.



    Those participating in the show include Jatin Lalit, Shaan and Sunidhi Chouhan, he said adding that it would be an exclusive show by the Indian stars and the tickets were priced as high as Rs 8000.



    Meanwhile, top Ghazal singer Jagjit Singh is scheduled to perform in Karachi in a special show.



    Also known as festival of kites, the 'Lahore Basant Festival' is considered Pakistan's largest tourist fest. The spring festival is expected to attract crowds from within Pakistan, India and across the world.
