Soon after Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh cancelled his performance at the opening ceremony of the upcoming Indian Premier League 2018 due to his shoulder injury, Hrithik Roshan has confirmed his performance at the ceremony that will be held on April 7, 2018. Yes, you heard it right, Hrithik along with Varun Dhawan, Parineeti Chopra and Jacqueline Fernandez would be making sure that we don’t forget the IPL opening ceremony. Hrithik is all set to woo the audience in the power-packed opening at the Wankhede Stadium ahead of the opening game between defending champions Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. A picture shared by Shaimak Davar’s PR says it all. We can see in the pic how Hrithik is practising with the celebrity choreographer and his team.
Hrithik confirmed it to the media, “Yes I can officially confirm that I will be performing for the opening ceremony of IPL. I have already started rehearsing for it. It will be fun to perform in front of a live audience once again.” The Kaabil actor will be seen performing to a medley of some of his hit songs ‘Dhoom Machale’, ‘Ek Pal Ka Jeena’, ‘Baware Baware’ and ‘Senorita’. There is a picture of Duggu practising with choreographer Shaimak which is going viral on social media.
Take a look at the viral picture:
A statement released by Ranveer Singh stated, “After multiple medical check-ups, the doctors have strongly advised Ranveer Singh to not perform at this year’s IPL opening ceremony. They feel his high-energy performance would only strain his shoulder and aggravate the injury.”
In an earlier statement, Ranveer’s spokesperson had said, “Ranveer Singh injured his shoulder during a football match and he has been advised by the doctors to not strain himself for at least a month. However, Ranveer has refused to take any breaks from the ongoing shoot of Gully Boy as it is not physically tenuous. He is also in consultation with the doctors to advise him on whether he should perform at this year’s IPL opening ceremony where he was locked for delivering the finale act.”
On the personal front, there are rumors that Hrithik is all set to get back together with his ex-wife Sussanne Khan. The two were recently spotted in Goa, taking a family vacation. On the professional front, Hrithik is currently shooting for Mathematician Anand Kumar’s biopic Super 30 and will then start filming for YRF’s action film with Tiger Shroff.
