The three Bollywood stars along with south star Prabhu Deva will be present at the opening ceremony of cricket’s Indian Premier League

Seems like Amitabh Bachchan can’t stay away from work too long, as the megastar is all set play a special part in the cricket‘s Indian Premier League (IPL) opening ceremony on April 3. The 69-year-old, who underwent two abdominal surgeries last month, will host the ceremony in Chennai. “Asia Cup over soon and then IPL …opening extravaganza in Chennai .. and yours truly a small part of it …nervous as hell. April 3 is the day for the opening, preparing for it already…getting back into the grind,” he tweeted. “And yes the show will be on Sony…meeting all the Captains and teams will be such an honour ..seen all of them on TV, now personally,” he added. Not just Big B, but Bollywood stars Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra are also touted to be performing at the ceremony to be held at the YMCA in Chennai. And joining them will be south actor-director Prabhu Deva.

Season 5 of the IPL will feature 76 matches, over a period of 54 days in the month of April and may. A total of nine teams are participating in the cricket league. “Mr Bachchan will play a part in IPL opening ceremony,” said BCCI vice-president Niranjan Shah.
