According to Bollywood sources, ‘Namastey England’ actress Parineeti Chopra is the latest celebrity after Ranveer Singh to withdraw from the opening ceremony of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Parineeti’s spokesperson shared a statement which reads, “Parineeti was shooting non-stop for ‘Namastey England’ in Patiala and had back to back pre-committed endorsement commitments. So, unfortunately, she did not have enough time to rehearse in spite of her best efforts.
“Being a thorough professional, Parineeti spoke to Wizcraft to show producers and explained to them that she was not okay putting up a compromised performance. Wizcraft has been gracious enough to understand this and agrees with Parineeti. She would not be performing at the gala opening”.
IPL 2018 will kick start on April 7, Bollywood stars like Varun Dhawan and Hrithik Roshan are scheduled to perform at the opening ceremony. Earlier this week, Ranveer’s representative said he was advised by doctors against performing at the gala to avoid an aggravating a shoulder injury.
