IPL Opening Night: Ranveer Singh Pulls Out Because Of Shoulder Injury, Hrithik Roshan Approached

32-year-old Padmaavat star will not be performing at the opening ceremony of the Indian Premiere League. BCCI has approached Hrithik Roshan for the finale act…

Ranveer Singh was recently spotted dubbing for Gully Boy, braving his shoulder injury and commendably putting work first. Unfortunately, there’s one professional commitment that he will not be able to keep, and it’s lined up for the coming weekend.

The 32-year-old actor will not be performing at the opening ceremony of the Indian Premiere League, a source confirmed to SpotboyE.com.

He actor’s spokesperson had told IANS last evening, "Ranveer Singh has injured his shoulder during a football match and has been advised not to over-strain it for at least one month. Ranveer is, however, not taking any breaks and will continue shooting for Gully Boy as per schedule."

Speaking about Ranveer’s upcoming IPL gig, his spokesperson had said, "Ranveer is in consultation with the doctors who will advise him, in a day or two, on whether he would able to perform at this year's Indian Premier League (IPL) opening ceremony in which he is doing the finale act."

It seems the doctors haven’t given Singh the green signal, and news is that he will not be performing at the IPL opening ceremony on April 7.

While life on the sets of Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy goes as per schedule, the IPL organisers are in a soup, because they need another star to take on the stage and wow the audiences with his finale act.

A source tells SpotboyE.com that BCCI is in advanced talks with Hrithik Roshan to close the glitzy night with his killer dance moves.

If Hrithik steps on-board, he will be the biggest star act of the night, followed by performances by Parineeti Chopra and Varun Dhawan.

Hrithik Roshan had earlier graced the IPL opening ceremony stage in Kolkata in 2015.
