Mumbai: Actor Ranbir Kapoor, who will be performing for the first time with his mother Neetu Kapoor on stage for an awards show, says she is nervous and so is he.
"She (Neetu Kapoor) is very nervous... she has not performed for a while. Actually, even I am nervous and excited to perform with her," Ranbir told reporters here at the press conference of Colors Screen Awards.
"I coaxed my mother to do a nice jig on stage. We will be performing on songs picturised on my family members. I am sure she will steal the limelight," the actor said. Ranbir will perform on his mother's popular song 'Parda Hai Parda' from the film 'Amar Akbar Anthony'.
The 30-year-old actor also expressed the desire to shake a leg with all his family members including cousin Kareena Kapoor.
"I tried to get Kareena to perform for the awards this time but she was not available. She is a very talented actress," Ranbir said. "I won't be able to do a romantic song with her as we are cousins. So I guess, we will do a 'Rakhsha Bandhan' song," he said.
Ranbir's film 'Barfi!' has been nominated in 17 categories at the Color Screen Awards including best film, best director, best actor and actress, best screenplay, best playback singer.
"When we were working on 'Barfi!' no one had such confidence in the film. The result has been a pleasant surprise. Nominations also do matter to me... I am happy with it. But it is the support of the audience that matters," he
said. Apart from Ranbir, all the three Khans are also battling for the best actor trophy of Color Screen awards.
The contenders include Salman Khan for 'Dabangg 2, Shah Rukh Khan for 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan', Aamir Khan for 'Talaash', Hrithik Roshan for 'Agneepath', Manoj Bajpai for 'Gangs of Wasseypur' and Irrfan Khan for 'Paan Singh Tomar'. The nominations for best actress include Deepika Padukone ('Cocktail'), Kareena Kapoor ('Heroine'), Parineeti Chopra ('Ishaqzaade'), Priyanka Chopra ('Barfi!'), Sridevi ('English Vinglish') and Vidya Balan ('Kahaani').
