- "She did not have enough time to rehearse," read statement
- Earlier this week, Ranveer Singh pulled out from the event
- Hrithik Roshan and Varun Dhawan will be performing at IPL 2018
Earlier this week, "Padmaavat" star Ranveer Singh had to pull out from the IPL opening ceremony due to his shoulder injury. The actor was advised against performing at the gala to avoid aggravating the injury. Ranveer released a statement through his spokesperson, which read, "After multiple medical check-ups, the doctors have strongly advised Ranveer Singh not to perform at this year's IPL opening ceremony in which he was doing the grand finale act. They feel his high-energy performance would only overstrain his shoulder and aggravate the injury."
Meanwhile, Ranveer wrote on Twitter, "Thank you for the good wishes everyone. I'm good. It's just a labral tear in my left shoulder. I intend to come back stronger. Love you all."

Ranveer was set to perform the finale act, which reportedly is being prepared by actor Hrithik Roshan now. "Yes, I can officially confirm that I will be performing for the opening ceremony of IPL. I have already started rehearsing for it. It will be fun to perform in front of a live audience once again," Hrithik said in a statement, reports Hindustan Times.
Apart from Hrithik Roshan, actor Varun Dhawan will also be performing at 2018's IPL opening ceremony.
