RK has apparently once again invited the actor to join his world tour after he had earlier opted out citing date problems
They aren't the best of friends, as reported by a section of the press. But that isn't stopping Ranbir Kapoor from making a special request to Shahid to join his world tour in August. This comes in the wake of the news of both of them bonding big time in Macau at an awards event recently.
Shahid had earlier opted out of the world tour after the director of his next film fell ill that resulted in the shoot being postponed. Rishi Kapoor who is also the producer of the tour confirms Shahid's inclusion. He says, "Shahid and my son have become good friends. He is likely to join us. The rest of the details are still being finalised."
We had earlier reported about how Shahid had helped Ranbir overcome his nervousness before his first stage performance at the event (Hitlist, January 25, 2012). That's when they really bonded with each other. And this was when Kapoor Junior realized that Shahid was very important for his world tour.
Now buzz is that Shahid is trying his best to juggle around his dates to accommodate RK's world tour. Besides Ranbir, Shahid and Katrina, the world tour would also feature Priyanka Chopra and Anushka Sharma. Regarding his own performance on stage with Ranbir, Rishi says, "There's a demand for it. But whether my injured knees allow me the pleasure of dancing with my son, remains to be seen."
