The actor performed to the songs from Bajirao Mastani and Gunday. If there was any show-stopping performances at IPL 2016 opening ceremony, it would be Ranveer Singh's act. Yes, his entry was very weak when he entered the stage wearing cricket gear on a pitch, but the Bajirao Mastani actor saved the show with his infectious charm and inexhaustible energy. He danced to the tunes of Vaat lavli from Bajirao Mastani, Tune Maari Entriyaan from Gunday, Gallan Goodiyan from Dil Dhadakne Do and others. During Gallan Goodian, he even danced with a few of the audience members.
By the end of the act, he was left panting and tired, but that didn’t stop him from engaging the audience and trying to raise the spirits, especially of the foreign players, who were utterly non-plussed as to what was happening! He later called upon on stage the rest of the performers of the evening, Katrina Kaif, Jacqueline Fernandez and Yo Yo Honey Singh. He also made a cheeky comments on Katrina’s flat stomach, or ‘abs’ as he referred them. He later also called on stage Dwayne Bravo, whose was the best performance of the evening as he performed to his own song Champion. On stage, Dwayne again sang the song to which others joined him, and finally Ranveer brought in the popular Los Angeles based band, Major Lazer.
