Mumbai: Bollywood chocolate boy actor Shahid Kapoor turned down an offer of Rs 15 crore to dance at a private function in London. According to reports, the multi-millionaire NRI Lakshmi Mittal pursued the dishy actor to perform on the birthday party of his wife Usha.

Apparently, Shahid has brushed-off the offer despite Mittal’s shelling a huge fortune to rope in their favorite star. Talking to a daily, a source said, “The Mittals only wanted Shasha as the family is a fan of the ‘Chance Pe Dance’ star. They offered a whopping amount that Kapoor refused without a moment`s hesitation.”

A private party jig offer to Shahid came through the Morani Brothers - Karim and Ali who manage Shasha`s events. They tried their best to convince the actor to change his mind, but to no avail.

Further adding, the source said, “It`s a known fact that unlike other big stars, Shahid doesn`t dance for private functions. People close to him advised him to treat this as a special case. But he didn`t budge.”

Rebuffing the offer, Shahid made it loud and clear that he is in the showbiz not just for the money.
