When it comes to the International Indian Films Academy Awards, all eyes are on the performance. Fans eagerly wait to watch celebs performing onstage. And this year at the star-studded event most of them knew who all would be performing. Salman Khan, Shahid Kapoor, Sushant Singh Rajput, Kriti Sanon, Alia Bhatt, Katrina Kaif, and many others performed and the event a memorable. But there’s something that many are not aware and that is, the cool dad Shahid was apparently told not to perform at IIFA Awards 2017. Isn’t it bit strange?

Shahid Kapoor is one of the celeb whose dancing skill is just more than wow! From the time he has entered the glamorous industry, fans have fallen in love with his grooves. At the IIFA Awards 2017 Shahid put up a fabulous performance leaving everyone enthralled. Apparently the actor had suffered an injury while shooting an action scene for ‘Padmavati’. Shahid was under medication after that and was even advised to take rest which he did and with time his health improved. Unfortunately, he suffered an ankle injury again while rehearsing for IIFA on day one.

A source informed Mid-Day, “Since it was a ligament tear, Shahid was told not to perform. But he didn’t want to go back on his word. He made his act compact and less exerting. It was smartly choreographed. Some songs were also dropped.” The source also mentioned, “He was on painkillers for the entire day.” Hats off to Sasha’s dedication, he just surprised everyone with his breathtaking performance!
