Shahid Kapoor says, " I'm excited to be back to live performances, award functions, travelling, meeting friends and colleagues, feeling challenged and excited to be putting my best performance on stage. I'm a little nervous, people think, 'Oh he dances' but I actually haven't danced (live) in six years... My last performance was in IIFA, New York."
"I love performing live. It's the best connection between an artiste and audience. I won't be dancing to any of my songs, I've not been allowed to perform to any of my songs, I'm doing a special tribute to Bappi da and his songs. I'm excited and looking forward to that."
Singer-composer Bappi Lahiri, famous for his disco beats in Hindi films of the 70s and 80s and also some soulful crooning, has died following multiple health issues. He was 69.
