Bollywood star to throw out first pitch at Rays game

Wednesday is Bollywood Night at the Tampa Bay Rays game, when the Rays play the Twins and the team has enlisted Bollywood star Shahid Kapoor to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Think this comes out of left field? Not when the area is celebrating the International Indian Film Academy making its first U.S. stop in Tampa next week. You can get a discounted seat in the Press Level and a Rays Bollywood-themed T-shirt for $25 at raysbaseball.com/specialevents. Use promotion code JAIHO1. Kapoor, 33, is a Bollywood heartthrob who has appeared in dozens of Hindi films. He will co-host the IIFA award show — the "Bollywood Oscars" — with actor-director Farhan Akhtar, a charming duo who hosted the award show when it was in Singapore in 2012. — Sharon Kennedy Wynne, Times staff writer
