In a once-in-four-years extravaganza, the ICC World Cup 2023 is all set to kick off on October 5 with a high-octane clash between the finalists of the previous edition, England and New Zealand. The stage for this cricketing spectacle is none other than the iconic Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

However, before the battles on the pitch commence, cricket fans and enthusiasts can expect a star-studded opening ceremony, planned jointly by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the International Cricket Council (ICC), scheduled for October 4.

The grand curtain-raiser promises to be nothing short of a visual feast, featuring not only the ten captains who will lead their respective nations into battle, including the dynamic Rohit Sharma, but also a galaxy of Bollywood stars.

Superstar Ranveer Singh, the legendary Asha Bhosle, the melodious Shreya Ghoshal, the heartthrob Arijit Singh, the beautiful Tamannaah Bhatia, and the man behind the iconic 2011 World Cup song, Shankar Mahadevan, are among the luminaries gracing this event. Additionally, the composer and singer of this edition's theme song, 'Dil Jashn Bole,' Pritam, is also expected to be part of the glittering lineup.
