In a condition of not disclosing the name, a trusted source confirmed the news that Arijit Singh and Shreya Ghoshal are all set to perform in the BPL opening ceremony this year.

However, one of the members of BPL governing committee, Sheikh Sohel aslo hinted about that in an recent interview.

“In this year’s BPL opening ceremony we want to bring music stars instead of film stars. According to the last meeting of our governing council, we have changed our decision of inviting Shahrukh Khan and Alia Bhat for the program. Actually these kind of performers take more money, performing for only 15-20 minutes. Also it is tough to manage schedule from them. So we changed our decision,” said Sheikh Sohel.

“We want to start the BPL this year with a colorful opening ceremony. People get more interest when BPL starts with a colorful program. For that reason we are planing to arrange the program with the performances of country’s big stars as well as foreign stars. It will be completely different this year,” Sohel signed off.
