Ranbir Kapoor has reportedly been paid a huge sum to host Star Plus’ upcoming Indian Premier League 2018 finale show this week.

DNA India reports that he will be like the curator of the show titled ‘Cricket Final Party Toh Banti Hai’. A source told the publication, “He will be like the curator of the show who will shoot anchoring links. There will be various segments wherein Bollywood stars will appear to promote their films. Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Anil Kapoor will promote Race 3, while Kareena Kapoor Khan and Sonam K Ahuja will promote Veere Di Wedding. They have already shot their part for the show. On Saturday, Ranbir will introduce the various segments. The show will be deferred live.”

“It is an ideal platform for him to promote his movie. Also, the biopic is distributed by the international studio, which also owns the network that is airing the IPL matches,” added the source.

Kapoor is gearing up for his next release ‘Sanju’ out on 29th June, and thus this show is a great platform to promote the Sanjay Dutt biopic.
