    Shahid Kapur will be performing with Nelly Furtado on December 31 as a part of the Nokia New Year's Eve concert. The actor who is just back after a holiday in Singapore and a show in Bali, talks about his excitement about grooving with the Grammy Award winner.

    How did the Nelly Furtado show happen? Says Shahid, "A couple of months ago, I got a call from the organisers but I was unsure since I have never performed on New Year's Eve.

    It's a time which has always been reserved for my family. I have always been very particular about my family life and have always given them priority. I found out that the show was going to end at 12.05 am sharp and the venue is Andheri Sports Complex, which is close to where I stay.

    Then I checked with my family who said I should go ahead as I was going to perform with an international artiste and I agreed."

    Fusion's the word

    Is the actor apprehensive about performing with an international performer? "No. I am very excited. This time I have got loads of time to rehearse. It's a good break to get. It's the first thing I have signed after Vivah. I love dancing on stage but it's very important that when you are dancing with an international artiste your dancing too should be of that standard. I have grown on international music while I was working with Shiamak Davar and his dance troupe and Nelly is one of my favourite singers," informs Kapur.

    Has Shahid decided on what he's going to perform and his look? "It's an interesting fusion. So the songs will definitely be Bollywood, which is what we represent. It will be an amalgamation of international and Bollywood music."

    Love ke liye

    Shahid's just returned from a show in Bali with ladylove Kareena. Akshay and Lara and also enjoyed a holiday with Bebo in Singapore. "Yes, but it was a brief one - only for two days - as we both had commitments to keep, back in Mumbai. The last time, Bebo and I had been to Singapore, was for IIFA and we hardly had any time for going around. So this time around it was better."

    According to trade circles Vivah has been declared a success. "It's strange, but with Vivah, people's perception about me has changed as it was a solo hero, performance-oriented film.

    After Ishq Vishk, it's Vivah that has given me satisfaction. My character was a nice one - what he did in the end was a noble thing to do." Would Shahid emulate his character in real life? "It's a very difficult thing to comment about. But yes, if you truly love someone and want to spend the rest of your life with her, then you have to stand by that person," concludes the actor.
