Mumbai: As the Indian Premier League (IPL) is about to complete a decade in the business, the organisers have come up with an all new innovative idea to interact with as much Cricket fans as possible.
To mark the beginning of IPL-10, the organisers have decided to host eight different opening ceremonies, one before the first home match of each franchise, said IPL Chairman Rajeev Shukla.
“It would be unfair to say it was my idea. All the members sat together and decided to have separate opening ceremonies across all the host cities to give the fans an opportunity to witness the opening of the 10th edition of the IPL live,” Shukla said.
“The various segments of the ceremony will be on our culture, the culture and tradition of the host cities as also highlighting the high points from the last nine editions of the tournament. We will also have performances from Bollywood stars, spirit of cricket signing, etc,” he said.
Bollywood stars like Hrithik Roshan, Shahid Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone and many more have performed at the IPL opening ceremonies of the past nine editions, but this time, it would be the younger generation which would take the centre state.
Well, it surely is a very interesting idea which would help IPL in engaging more and more people of the country.
Here is the list of Bollywood stars who would be performing at different venues:
