In a highly-anticipated event, the soulful sensation Arijit Singh is all set to perform in Sector 34 on Saturday.
Giant posters have taken over the Sector 34 ground, facing the furniture market, heralding the arrival of the musical maestro. The stage is being prepared meticulously for the concert, which is scheduled to kick off at 5 pm, and Arijit’s fans are buzzing with excitement.
Fans of all ages are eagerly gearing up for the event, with tickets priced between 1000 and 15000. Enthusiasts from neighboring states are expected to descend upon Chandigarh for the event.
However, amidst the growing demand, there are reports of scammers attempting to exploit the situation.
To combat ticket scams, the Chandigarh cyber cell issued a warning on Twitter, cautioning citizens to beware of fake tickets and fraudulent offers. They emphasised the importance of purchasing tickets only from reputable sources and refraining from sharing personal information on suspicious websites. The authorities urged the public to prioritise their safety while enjoying the show.
