He was reportedly very upset with how the whole thing was addressed. The award was then presented to Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor then supposedly walked out of the show. He was to perform. But he decided not to record his performance as well.” The awards night that was conducted a few days ago will be telecast soon.
