Ranbir to perform with mom Neetu on stage

For the first time Ranbir Kapoor will be performing on stage with mother Neetu Singh and he said that his mother is quite nervous.

"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 and Neetu Kapoor will be performing on hit numbers picturized on his mother.

Ranbir also expressed his 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.

Anurag Basu’s 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, the contenders for the best actor at the Colors Screen Awards are 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.

For the best actress, the nominations include Deepika Padukone (Cocktail), Kareena Kapoor (Heroine), Parineeti Chopra (Ishaqzaade), Priyanka Chopra (Barfi!), Sridevi (English Vinglish) and Vidya Balan (Kahaani).
