The 11th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) kicks off on the weekend, with Mumbai Indians (MI) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) facing off in the opening game of the tournament at the former's backyard.
Among the traits that define the league are glamour, and the opening ceremony that takes place before the first game of the tournament is usually one that highlights that particular trait. An event in which some of the biggest names from the Hindi film industry, aka Bollywood, dazzle in front of all the participating teams as well as a packed house, and this time it won't be any different, with the likes of Hrithik Roshan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Tamannah Bhatia set to perform at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium on Saturday evening.
