The excitement for the Indian Premier League (IPL) is reaching a fever pitch this year, and a major reason is the star-studded opening ceremony planned for March 22nd. The official IPL account on social media has announced a lineup that promises an “unforgettable fusion of cricket and entertainment.”

The IPL has established a reputation for kicking off each season with a grand opening ceremony. Over the years, these events have become a spectacle in themselves, featuring dazzling performances by A-list celebrities from Bollywood, the Indian music scene and International artists. Fans eagerly await the unveiling of the performers each year, and the ceremonies often generate immense buzz on social media.

Several past opening ceremonies remain etched in the memories of IPL fans. The 2023 edition, for instance, saw the electrifying performances of actresses Rashmika Mandanna and Tamannaah Bhatia, along with the soulful voice of singer Arijit Singh. A video of Rashmika’s energetic dance to the popular song “Jimikki Ponnu” even went viral, showcasing the infectious energy of the event.

Here’s a look back at some of the most unforgettable opening ceremonies:

  • 2010: The inaugural ceremony set the bar high, with performances by Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, and Amitabh Bachchan.
  • 2013: The opening in Kolkata saw a vibrant display of Bengali culture, featuring performances by Shah Rukh Khan again (representing KKR), Katrina Kaif, and Pitbull.
  • 2018: This ceremony, held in Mumbai, was a star-studded affair with Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone, and Alia Bhatt lighting up the stage.
