Mumbai: Superstar in the making Ranbir Kapoor is going to rule the world soon. News has it that the Kapoor scion has been lined up for a 16-city concert in US and Europe next year. Riding high on the recent success of ‘Raajneeti’ and praised for his A-class performance in many of his earlier films, Ranbir Kapoor is earning worldwide admiration.
To cash in on his growing stardom, Morani brothers (producers) have planned out a concert which will begin in the US and cover 16 stops across Canada as well as select cities in Europe. This will be the first leg of his tour with South Africa and other countries en route.
Confirming the report, the actor’s dad Rishi said, "Ranbir is going on a world tour next year. All the details have been worked out. I have done some 300-odd shows around the world, some of them with the Moranis, so it`s like a new innings for us."
Why did the actor wait so long to go on tour? Rishi said, "You can`t just go on a world concert. It was important to have a bank of songs to perform on. Now that he`s a few films old and has some chartbusters to his credit it`s the right time."
The series will begin in June 2011 and continue till July-end. Rishi plans to be with his son when he flags off the tour. He added, "I don`t know how long I would be able to travel with him. But I definitely will be there with him for the first concert. Ranbir has refrained from performing at award shows or public events, so he would be rehearsing a lot for this concert."
A couple of actors will join him on the tour. "Katrina and Priyanka have been confirmed, but they are in talks with others as well. At the moment, we are working on the concept and ideation for the tour”, said Rishi.
