Vivo Indian Premier League 2018 is all set to kick-start from April 7, 2018, and actress Parineeti Chopra was to perform at the event but due to the continuous shoot schedule of her upcoming movie 'Namaste England', she wouldn't be able to perform at the opening ceremony. 

As per a statement released to the media, “Parineeti Chopra was to perform at this year’s IPL opening ceremony. She was shooting non-stop for Namaste England in Patiala and had back-to-back pre-committed endorsement commitments. So, unfortunately, she did not have enough time to rehearse in spite of her best efforts. Being a thorough professional, Parineeti spoke to Wizcraft and explained to them that she was not ok putting up a compromised performance. Wizcraft has been gracious enough to understand this and agrees with Parineeti. She would not be performing at the gala opening."

Earlier actor Ranveer Singh has also been roped in to perform the closing act at the ceremony. But unfortunately, due to a shoulder injury, he opted out of the opening ceremony. Now, superstar Hrithik Roshan will flaunt his feet in place of Ranveer Singh. Along with Hrithik Roshan, Jacqueline Fernandes and Varun Dhawan will be performing at the opening ceremony of 11th edition of IPL.
