Ranveer Singh backed out of IPL due to shoulder injury


Ranveer Singh’s shoulder injury restrained him from performing at the inaugural ceremony of the Indian Premiere League 2018. The 32-year-old has  injured his shoulder during a football match. Doctors advised him not to put stress on his shoulder as it would get worsen.

However, Ranveer continued to shoot for Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Gully Boys’. The actor’s spokesperson told news agency IANS that the actor had decided to shoot Zoya Akhtar's project as per schedule. "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," his spokesperson said.

Ranveer was to perform with Jacqueline Fernandez, Parineeti Chopra and Varun Dhawan at the IPL 2018 but he had to back out due to his injury.

However, the ‘Padmaavat’ actor is not ready to quit as he has some interesting dances moves and is waiting for a green signal from the doctors. "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." The IPL opening ceremony is on April 7.

Ranveer Singh exit from IPL might pave way for Hrithik Roshan, who had earlier performed at the IPL.
