Actors Anil Kapoor and Ayushaman Khurana and Aditi Rao Hydari perform at the inauguration of the 46th International Film Festival of India (IFFI-2015), in Panaji, Goa on Nov 20, 2015.

If there was ever a ‘paisa vasool’ chief guest, the organiser of International Film Festival of India may have found just the one in veteran actor Anil Kapoor.

Overcoming the sombreness of the occasion and the fact that it was an official function organised by the union ministry for information and broadcasting, Kapoor danced to popular film songs picturised on him.

He also gave a shoutout to Dev Patel, who he acted with in Oscar award-winning film ‘Slumdog Millionnaire’, while also returning the quips about his age from union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

Kapoor, who initially said he was humbled and overcome by emotion, quickly put it all aside by flinging his suit into the audience and dancing extempore to his trademark ‘tapori’ songs like ‘One two ka four’ from ‘Ram Lakhan’ and the racy number ‘Dhak Dhak’ from ‘Beta’ along with the ceremony’s co-host Aditi Rao Hydari.

From stage, he also gave a ‘long time no see’ shoutout to Dev Patel, who was seated in the audience.

“I am meeting Dev Patel from ‘Slumdog Millionnaire’ now since the Oscar night,” Kapoor said.

Patel plays Srinivasa Ramanujan Iyengar in ‘The Man Who Knew Infinity’ which is the opening film at IFFI.
