Stars perform even though the city is besieged by rioting

While Bollywood has been expressing solidarity with London during the ongoing riots, a bunch of big names from tinsel town flew to the city to be part of a corporate event on Tuesday. Shah Rukh Khan was among those invited for the event, which took place at the O2 Arena.
Besides SRK, singer Akon and former tennis player Boris Becker too attended as special guests. From Bollywood, names like Anushka Sharma and Ranbir Kapoor added more starpower to the evening, while AR Rahman, who is currently in London, also made a brief appearance. Akon's DJ Benny-Demus, who is also good friends with SRK, joined them on stage for the performance.
A source tells us that the event was successful despite fear about fresh riots breaking out. We hear that Ranbir, who has been in London for a few days, couldn't step out much, while SRK landed just a day prior to the event.
Says our source, "Everyone was obviously worried, but the event was successfully concluded. A day before the show, a few artists were tweeting about it and trying to gauge how bad the situation was, but things were okay. Shah Rukh even danced on stage with Akon and his lively presence peps up every event he is a part of."
