IPL 2023: After several rumours, it has now been confirmed that actress Tamannaah Bhatia will be performing at the opening ceremony of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on March 31st at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium. The ceremony will begin at 6 PM, just before the opening clash. She will be the first performer at the ceremony, which is expected to have many VIPs attending. Tamannaah is well-known for her work in Tamil and Telugu films, and she started her acting career in 2005. She was also part of the famous Baahubali movies, which starred Prabhas.
Other celebrities is expected to perform in IPL 2023
The enthusiasm among the fans is increasing everyday as the 16th season of the highly anticipated T20 competition approaches in two days. The current title winner Gujarat Titans and the four-time champion Chennai Super Kings will square off in the opening match of the forthcoming Indian Premier League on March 31, 2023. The Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad will host the game.
Also, there are rumours that IPL 2023’s opening ceremony would feature performances by stars like Rashmika Mandanna, Tiger Shroff, Katrina Kaif, and Arijit Singh. The Indian Premier League 2023 will also be particularly unique since it will resort to its original format of home and away matches, as it had up to the 2019 season, after three seasons.
Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the past three seasons of the Indian Premier League were either held in the United Arab Emirates or at only a few selected venues. IPL opening ceremonies have featured a star-studded lineup since since the tournament began in 2008. Celebrities including Salman Khan, Pitbull, Akon, Shah Rukh Khan, Shriya Saran, and Katrina Kaif have performed at these inauguration ceremonies.
First IPL Opening Ceremony since 2018
The IPL’s opening ceremony, however, has not been held since 2018. The 2019 IPL Governing Council and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) made the decision to cancel the ceremony and donate the money to the families of the CRPF soldiers martyred on February 14, 2019. After that, due to Covid, there were no more ceremonies.
