Russell Crowe does it. Brett Lee does it. The good news is apna homegrown Saif Ali Khan will do it too - strum a guitar on stage. Come December 18 and the Chhote Nawab will enthrall audiences with his maiden guitar performance in the Capital.
Saif and guitars have been inseparable this year. What with that cute paint commercial where he sells the beloved instrument to buy a present for mommy dearest, to his strumming and strutting around as the spoilt rich boy in Parineeta .
Saif's expertise with the guitar was first noticed at the Temptations 2004 show in Atlanta last year. Those who know him say that the Salaam Namaste star's love for the instrument goes back many years and that he is a huge fan of guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani.
On D-Day, Saif will join Delhi rock band Parikrama at Mittal Gardens. He will play Guns n Roses' Sweet Child of Mine , Survivor's Eye of the Tiger , besides a few others. "We're really looking forward to playing out and out rock'n'roll at the concert," says Parikrama's Subir Malik.
