Main attraction of Indian premier League is opening ceremony. Bollywood actors come and entertain cricket lovers in the stadium. IPL 2018 Opening ceremony will held on 7th April 2018 in Mumbai before Thrilling first IPL 2018 Match Mumbai indians VS Chennai super kings. IPL Opening ceremony will take 40 to 50 minutes. Ranveer singh, Varun dhawan and jaqueline fernandez will perform in IPL 2018 Opening ceremony. Apart from them Prabhudeva and Mika singh also perform in ceremony.
BCCI Officials said that, “Ranveer, Varun, Jacqueline, Parineeti and Tamanna are some of the Bollywood stars who will set the stage on fire at the opening. Apart from that, you will also have the likes of Mika and Prabhudeva to entertain the fans. The idea is to not just give those at the ground a good time, but to also give those watching on television a show they will remember in the days to come.”
“It is always about starting well and the job is half done. The idea of having different opening ceremonies at different venues did not go down too well with the audience last time round, so this is the plan this time,” the official said.
Asked about rumours that Ranveer is being paid a whopping Rs 5 crore for the performance at the opening the official refused to get into details.
“See, the budget is Rs 20 crore and that has been approved. Now, let us not get into minute details on who is being paid what for how long. As long as we are able to give you guys a show worth remembering, there shouldn’t be anything to complain about. We believe that this opening ceremony will just like in previous years, set the tone on what is expected to be a thrilling tournament over the next 50 days.”
