As the third season of Indian Premier League (IPL) kick starts tomorrow, many national and international artistes will grace the event with their starling performances. One of the main attractions of the grand inaugural evening will be the performance of beautiful Deepika Padukone. She will groove to the hit Bollywood numbers like Uff Teri Ada from Karthik Calling Karthik and Twist from Love Aaj Kal. She will also perform to a medley of I Gotta Feeling by Black Eyed Peas with 40 background dancers.

Other attractions of the evening will be a sparkling performance by international artiste Ali Campbell of the British reggae band UB40 and Bjorn Again.

Says Sundar Raman, CEO, IPL, “The IPL weekend fever has already begun. But the real action will take off on Thursday night in Mumbai.

The party will begin in the evening around 8 pm.Entry is by invitation only. The guest list will include eminent people from Bollywood, socialites, corporate honchos, politicians, bureaucrats and cricketers. But the main attraction of the evening will be the performances by the international artistes.”

Sundar elaborates, “Day 1 of the IPL tournament kicks off with an opening ceremony before the match, on Friday evening. It will be a visually spectacular show. The opening ceremony will begin at 6.45 pmat the DY Patil Sports Stadium in Mumbai. After the match concludes, IPL officials and players will proceed to a plush city hotel to attend the after-match party-cum-fashion show.” We also hear that a lot of Delhicelebrities are planning to attend the opening ceremony.
