Shahid Kapoor to dance on evergreen hits of Bappi Lahiri at the alluring IIFA Awards 2022

It’s time for entertainment night and a spellbinding award show. IIFA Awards or International Indian Film Academy and Awards is back with its 22nd edition. The stage is set, hosts are on the roll and performers are gearing up for the lit event of the year. Among other performers of the stunning event, Shahid Kapoor is pumped up to grace the stage on 4th June at Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. Allegedly, with his return to the live stage after six years Shahid Kapoor will pay tribute to Bappi Lahiri.

The Jersey actor, who was holidaying last month in Europe with Kunal Khemu, is power-packed for his spectacular performance at IIFA 22. It is confirmed that he will be performing on evergreen hits of Bappi Da as a tribute to the legendary music composer. In a press conference held on June 2nd, Kabir Singh star revealed about his special performance dedicated in the honour of veteran composer – late Bappi Lahiri, who passed away due to Obstructive Sleep Apnea on February 16, 2022.

Shahid Kapoor said, “I am paying a tribute to Bappi Da with my performance. I will dance to his evergreen songs. This time, I’m not performing on any of my songs but only for Bappi Da.”

Shahid Kapoor is a dancer first and then an actor. He entered the industry as a back dancer in ‘Taal’ and ‘Dil Toh Pagal Hai’. Talking about the connection between dance and the audience, he said: “I love performing live. It’s the best connection between an artist and the audience. I won’t be dancing to any of my songs, I’ve not been allowed to perform to any of my songs, (but) I’m doing a special tribute to Bappida and his songs. I’m excited and looking forward to that,” the actor said at the event.

Shahid returned to the stage or say performing live for approximately after six years. During the press conference of the three days extravaganza event, the actor shared his excitement about dancing on the IIFA stage. He expressed his enthusiasm saying, “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.”
