The IPL 2018 is just about to start and cricket fever is already taking the country in its grip. IPL will start from April 7 and there is no doubt that like the tournament, the opening ceremony will also be grand.
As per sources, Bollywood artists who will be performing at the IPL opening ceremony are Ranveer Singh, Parineeti Chopra, Jacqueline Fernandez and Varun Dhawan. The organisers are pretty determined to make the premiere of IPL a glitzy affair and they don’t mind spending huge amount of money for it.
There were reports that Ranveer Singh will be paid a whopping amount of Rs. 5 Crore for his performance of 15 minutes but he is not the highest paid actor at the IPL opening ceremony.
The actor who will be paid higher than Ranveer for performing at the IPL opening ceremony is the “Judwaa 2” star Varun Dhawan and he will be paid approximately Rs. 6 Crore for his performance.
The reason for Varun getting paid more than the “Padmaavat” actor is his mass appeal. After all, he is more popular among the kids and youngsters.
He will be shaking a leg on the hit songs of “Judwaa2” and “Badrinath Ki Dulhania”. It is also said that he and Jacqueline will perform together in some acts.
The young actor is presently busy in the promotions of his upcoming flick “October” and at the same time, he is also shooting for “Sui Dhaaga”. He is taking a two-day off for rehearsal of his performance at the IPL opening ceremony.
Who do you think will be more entertaining- Varun or Ranveer?
