Ranbir Kapoor is simply adored by everyone in India and abroad. However, he is yet to display his dancing skills on a global stage. Realizing this, it was father Rishi Kapoor who realized that Ranbir needed to be exhibited in a more worldwide manner. The proud father explained, “This is the first time that my son will be stepping on to a live stage. I want to make sure everything goes right. So yes, I’m producing and presenting the live concerts. With my experience in live concerts, I know I can be useful. I don’t want anything to go wrong for my son.”
The concert is all set to kick start in June 2011 and will cover Europe, the U.S. and Canada. Audiences can look forward to seeing both father and son sharing a stage and shaking a leg together as well the likes of Priyanka Chopra and Katrina Kaif who have already been signed on to be a part of the show. Shahid Kapoor too is said to be touring with the group. While rumors of Deepika Padukone being a part of the troupe had been doing rounds, Rishi Kapoor clarified that it was possible but not certain just yet. “All I can tell you is that we have Katrina, Priyanka and Shahid Kapoor on board. Deepika is likely to be on board. She hasn’t been signed on yet,” he explained.
Rishi Kapoor also explained the need for a concert because none had taken place in over three years. He also emphasized that Ranbir had expressed a desire to go on a world tour but was keen to only do so when he was convinced he was ready. “My boy has waited patiently for three years until he thought he was ready to face a live audience. He has turned down all offers to perform at awards function. And that’s his show’s USP. When actors perform at awards function these are beamed to dozens of countries across the world. Therefore there is no novelty left in watching a star dance on stage. My son has never been seen live,” the proud father beamed.
