While, they call IPL as the biggest festival of India, Hrithik, Shahid and Anushka certainly did not give their biggest performance at the opening ceremony and neither Saif Ali Khan's hosting seemed much impressive.
There was a lot of excitement around the IPL Opening ceremony and rightly so, when stars like Hrithik Roshan, Shahid Kapoor and Anushka Sharm are the performers.
But with on-stage fumbles and co-ordination lacking performances, one cannot expect to receive much positive reviews and responses.
Twitter was abuzz with the event as the hashtag #IPLOpeningCeremony has been trending there since quite long. However, the post-event comments reflected on the fact that majority of the Twitter viewers were disappointed by the performances of their favourite stars.
It is to be mentioned, Shahid Kapoor apparently fumbled on the stage twice during his performance and Anushka Shama too failed to offer much energy on the stage. On the other side, Saif Ali Khan also seemed amateur as a host and was quite boring with the mike. Neverthelss, Hrithik Roshan was the only star performer who comparatively gave a good show.
Having said all these, let's have a look at how the Twitter viewers responded to Hrithik Roshan, Shahid Kapoor and Anushka Sharma's performance and the overall IPL Opening Ceremony...
