Highlights

  1. Shahid Kapoor performed at IIFA awards despite ankle injury
  2. 'He didn't want to go back on his word,' said a source
  3. Shahid injured himself earlier while filming Padmavati
Shahid Kapoor rocked his IIFA awards performance held over the weekend in New York's MetLife stadium but little did his fans know that the 36-year-old actor was injured while he danced to some of his best tracks. A mid-day report stated that Shahid injured his ankle while shooting for Padmavati, which resurfaced during the rehearsal for his IIFA gig. Though the doctors advised Shahid to take bed rest, the Shaandaar actor decided to improvise his dance steps to minimise exertion. "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," a source told mid-day.

Shahid Kapoor's setlist comprised his best dance songs like Gandi Baat and Saree Ke Fall Sa from R... Rajkumar, Nagada from Jab We Met and Dhan Te Nan from Kaminey. "He was on painkillers for the entire day," the source added.
