Qatar has roped in a Bollywood actress to unravel the FIFA World Cup 2022 trophy during the final, to be held on December 18.

Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone has once again made all Indians proud. According to an ANI source, Deepika will go to Qatar to take part in the FIFA World Cup 2022 trophy presentation. After representing her country at Cannes 2022, Deepika will be a part of the final ceremony to be held on December 18 at the Lusail Stadium in Lusail.

The Lusail Stadium, also known as the Lusail Iconic Stadium, is Qatar's biggest stadium with a capacity of 80,000. Lusail Stadium is a futuristic venue with state-of-the-art facilities. The stadium's iconic design is inspired by the interplay between light and shadows which symbolises the famous Arabic lantern called Fanar.

Besides hosting the FIFA World Cup 2022 final, the stadium will also hold the quarter-final match between the Netherlands and Argentina. At the same time, it will also hold one of the semi-finals.
