    Shahid Kapoor prefers to take a professional plunge even if he's been injured. A few days before his grand performance at the Star Screen Awards on Saturday, the actor sprained his neck while working out.

    Instead of cancelling his act, Shahid not only rehearsed without straining himself but also performed a dangerous stunt at the function.

    Challenging act

    Says Shahid, "I'm glad my act went off well. We had a lot of time to rehearse, so my choreographer Inder and I decided to try something different. I arrived on stage in harness with a bungee cord attached to the floor at a 45 degree angle. Both of us were very excited when we thought up the idea two weeks ago.

    I hadn't done something like this before, so it took us four days to rehearse. The organisers even created a special set for us. I was a little nervous as it was my first act with a bungee cord, but I'm glad it turned out well and I didn't make mistakes!"

    Mr Optimistic

    Even though Shahid suffered from a painful neck injury and was advised rest, he prefers to take a philosophical attitude to attempting to pull off the act. He says, "There was no question of me cancelling my act.

    It was a big show and I didn't want to let the organisers down. These things happen. I sprained my neck while working out in my gym. It was quite painful and I was on medication even on the day of the show. I rested as much as I could before going on stage."

    Looking back, Shahid is very happy with the way the year 2006 turned out. "It was a very positive year. I had three releases, out of which 36 China Town and Chup Chup Ke did well, while Vivah got me a lot of appreciation."

    Any regrets? "I don't have any regrets. It's all about the learning curve and it's important to take something positive from every experience. This year, I just want to do better work," he signs off.
