The father-son duo performed to each other’s songs at IIFA Singapore
Actors Ranbir and Rishi Kapoor set the stage on fire in Singapore on Saturday at the 13th International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards by performing together for the first time.
Ranbir made a rockstar entry with an electric guitar in his hand and performed on Saadda haq from his hit film Rockstar. He later donned a tapori avatar and grooved to Tai tai phish from Chillar Party. Though Ranbir is known for his impeccable dancing style, it was his father Rishi who stole the limelight on the stage.
Rishi entered the stage saying his famous Karz line from Om shanti om song – ‘Kya tumne kabhi kisi se pyaar kiya‘ – and soon the audience joined him in completing it saying, ‘Kiyaa…’, before he kickstarted his act. Ranbir was seen matching steps with his father on the song Paisa yeh paisa from the Rishi’s hit film Karz.
A remixed version of the song Bachna ae hasino from Rishi’s film Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahi was used in Ranbir’s 2008 film Bachna Ae Haseeno, starring Minissha Lamba, Bipasha Basu and Deepika Padukone. Both Ranbir and Rishi were seen competing with each other on their own versions of the songs as a part of the act. In the end, Ranbir accepted defeat, bowing at his father’s feet to seek his blessings.
