Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh will not perform at the opening ceremony of the upcoming edition of Indian Premier League which is scheduled to take place on April 7.

Ranveer suffered a shoulder injury during a football match and doctors have advised him to not perform after doing multiple check-ups.

As per his spokesperson, "After multiple medical check-ups, the doctors have strongly advised Ranveer Singh to not perform at this year's IPL opening ceremony in which he was doing the finale act. They feel his high-energy performance would only overstrain his shoulder and aggravate the injury."

The 'Padmavat' star had taken a whopping Rs 5 crore for 15-minute performance in IPL’s eleventh edition.

"Ranveer will continue to shoot for 'Gully Boy' as per its shooting schedule which is not physically strenuous since only performance-based talkie scenes are left to be shot," the statement added.
