The Padmaavat star was set to rock the opening ceremony at the 11th edition of the Indian Premiere League this week, with a 15-minute performance. But recent reports reveal that Ranveer has canceled his performance due to an injury.

The actor injured his shoulder during a football match and the doctors have advised against performing at the event. “After multiple medical checkups, the doctors have strongly advised Ranveer Singh not to perform at this year’s IPL opening ceremony in which he was doing the grand finale act. They feel his high-energy performance would only overstrain his shoulder and aggravate the injury,” Ranveer’s spokesperson said in a statement.

The actor will continue to shoot for his upcoming film Gully Boy, as the role does not require physical strain. He is also working on Rohit Shetty and Karan Johar’s Simmba, co-starring Sara Ali Khan, as well as Kabir Khan’s ’83.
