BCCI had an opening ceremony for the Women’s Premier League as well. But it received a mixed response in absence of superstars. However, for the IPL Opening ceremony, BCCI wants several Bollywood A-listers.

InsideSport understands that popular Bollywood singers like Arijit Singh have been contacted for a live performance. However, no artist has been confirmed as of writing.

It should be noted that IPL 2023 has returned to the home-and-away format after a three-year gap. However, despite a home-and-away format in 2019, there was no opening ceremony to pay tributes to the martyrs of the Pulwama attacks.
