However, organising such an event at a huge stadium like Motera comes with its drawbacks. Furthermore, the performers don’t have access to the stadium everyday since it was hosting the IPL 2022 Qualifier 2. Also, the fact that, it will be held during a pandemic, organisers had to be cautious and take extra precautions to avoid any Covid cases in the camp. Excerpts of the chat.

On challenges:

The first challenge is to make the event friendly for the in-stadium audience. Although the event will be broadcast live, you will also need to device the event for the offline crowd who are there at the stadium. So, you can’t just focus your entire performance towards the camera. So, you have to device a plan so that everyone can be part of the experience.

Then, when you are taking an aerial shot or using spider cam, you can’t show a lot of empty stadium. So, you have to try and cover as much ground as possible.

On planning of the show

Our main attraction would AR Rahman and his troops besides Ranveer Singh. We will have folk artists coming from all over India. We will have folk artists from all 10 states celebrating the 10 teams. There will also be different folk performers as multiple states have varied culture.

On Metaverse

We launched the Gujarat Titans into the metaverse. We have created a dugout for GT in metaverse. The interactions and engagement level in this parallel world is way too many. The opportunity is limitless. So, this definitely will have a major boom in the coming days.

But augmented reality has been brought into the IPL for a first time. For the first time, the entire closing ceremony will also be broadcast in the metaverse. We want to bring alive 75 years of Indian cricket in the metaverse.
