Mumbai, Jan. 17 -- Kareena Kapoor Khan is undoubtedly one of the favourites at awards shows every year. But, this time, barring one show, she has declined to perform at all the others.
Apparently, the reason for the refusal is the strenuous rehearsals she is busy with for a special song in Karan Johar's next production, starring Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra.
"Kareena has rejected offers from three shows recently. Two of the award shows have already taken place. One more will happen soon. She is giving more importance to a special song that she will shoot next week," informs a source close to the actor.
The actor has been dedicating eight hours daily to practise the steps. "The song will be shot over 10 days, and Kareena wants to be fully prepared before going on the sets. Her costumes will be designed by Manish Malhotra. Manish and Karan will also be present at the shoot," adds the source.
Besides that, Kareena is also busy with the meetings of her next with Shahid Kapoor. "Her commitments have left her with no time to accept any show offers," says the source.
When contacted, Kareena's spokesperson confirmed the news, saying, "Kareena could not perform at the award shows this year as she has been rehearsing for her song for Karan's film."
