London: Katy Perry, who headed back to India where she was proposed to and subsequently got married to Russell Brand, seemed rejuvenated as she took to the stage and opened the Indian Premier League on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old singer was back to her best as she put herself in a compromising position with international cricketer Doug Bollinger.

Taking centre stage at the YMCA College of Physical Education Grounds, in Nandanam, Chennai, and Perry had her groove back as she entertained the audience with her cheeky sense of humour and provocative dancing.

The Californian girl called Australian cricketer Bollinger up and asked him to show her how to hold a cricket bat.

The 30-year-old bowler looked surprised at first when Perry pulled his arms around her, but he quickly got into the swing of things and lapped up the opportunity.

The 'Hot n Cold' hitmaker gave a storming performance of 'Teenage Dreams' and tried to respect local customs by not revealing too much skin during the raunchy performance.

However, as well as the flirty stunt with Bollinger, she kept pulses racing with her Bollywood inspired costume.

She wore a pair of pink shorts, which were partially covered by some transparent material, and she teamed that with a heavily sequined crop top.

The Firework singer also wore bindis above both eyebrows, which completed her Indian princess, look.Katy was clearly loving being back in India, and even the jet lag she had suffered wasn't getting her down.

"Almost fell asleep in my curry last night, no joke. Woke up feeling SO much better after a fresh meditate...feels appropriate being in INDIA," the Daily Mail quoted her as tweeting.

The trip has had a positive effect on Katy and she found time to reward her fans with a new Bollywood music style remix of her song 'California Gurls'.

"In honor of my visit to INDIA, here's a FREE, SPICED up version of CALIFORNIA GURLS *BOLLYWOOD MEETS HOLLYWOOD*," she tweeted.
