There were reports doing rounds on social media that state Shahid Kapoor opted out of dance performance at a recently concluded award function after he was not given Best Actor award.
The actor who graced the event, walked out after the organizers failed to live up to their promise. As per sources, they had given a word to the Kabir Singh hero that he will bag the Best Actor Popular award for his 2019 blockbuster. But, the award reportedly went to Ranveer Singh and a visibly upset Shahid decided not to perform.
Now as per the sources, Varun Dhawan has come to the rescue and performed in place of Shahid Kapoor at the award night.
A source says, “Varun Dhawan has been brought in as a replacement for Shahid on the show. VD will step in for Shahid and the entire performance has been reworked to suit Varun. When the channel approached the Gen-Y hero, they were visibly in a mess and Varun immediately agreed to help them out. He took a day to rehearse with the dance crew and delivered his performance last night.”
The show will be telecast on New Year’s Eve and that’s why Varun decided to dance on one of his upcoming film’s tracks. “Varun asked the team if they would be okay if he performed on a song from his upcoming dance film Street Dancer 3D. The theatrical trailer will be unveiled in a week’s time. Varun decided to perform on his song Garmi from Street Dancer 3D, which will be launched around a week before the awards night gets aired.”
The reports also stated the Varun also performed with Nora Fatehi at the event.
