Bollywood icon Akshay Kumar electrified the highly anticipated Indian Premier League (IPL 2024) Opening Ceremony on Friday with a grand entrance at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.

Known for his daring feats in films, the 'Khiladi' suspended himself high in the air, clutching the Indian tri-colour, as he made a dramatic descent into the stadium, captivating the audience with his filmy flair.

A video capturing Kumar's sensational entry quickly went viral on social media platforms, igniting excitement among fans as the ceremony unfolded.

The packed stadium erupted in euphoria as Kumar gracefully landed on stage, kickstarting his performance alongside fellow actor Tiger Shroff.

With nostalgic charm, Akshay Kumar mesmerised the crowd with renditions of his classic songs from popular movies like Bhool Bhulaiyaa and Desi Boyz, infusing the arena with his infectious energy.

In a thrilling moment, the seasoned actor took a triumphant lap around the cricket field on a bike, with Tiger Shroff proudly waving the Indian flag behind him, evoking patriotic fervor among spectators.

The resonating anthem "Sabse Aage Honge Hindustani" reverberated through the stadium, sending shivers down the spines of the audience who enthusiastically joined in the festivities, dancing and reveling in the gala spectacle.

The opening ceremony lasted a little over 30 minutes that also included the trophy presentation and captains' official picture with BCCI bigwigs and the performers on stage.

New Chennai Super Kings captain Rituraj Gaikwad received a massive round of applause and cheers as he brought the trophy on the stage.

Gaikwad was handed over the CSK captaincy by former skipper MS Dhoni just a day before the opening match. CSK will host Faf du Plessis's Royal Challengers Bengaluru in the first game.
