Mumbai: After months of speculation, news is that Ranbir Kapoor will finally make his debut on the 'world stage' in August this year. His father Rishi Kapoor confirms this. And, apparently, joining him on the tour is Shahid Kapoor, a surprising twist considering he turned down the offer last year!

Confirms a source, "Shahid received a call from the Moranis (the concert organisers) on Monday. He is now in the process of working out the dates. Some of his dates in August are booked for a film, but it should be okay."

Ranbir was supposed to go on his debut world tour last year with Bollywood hotties Katrina Kaif, Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone in tow. However the main attraction of his tour AR Rahman's songs for his movie Rockstar weren't ready at the time.

Says a source, "AR Rahman's songs weren't ready, but that's just once of the reasons the world tour didn't happen. There were several other factors that lead to the cancellation, including the possibility of discord between Deepika and Katrina (his alleged former girlfriends) who were to accompany him on the tour. Ranbir wanted his debut live concerts to be absolutely stress-free and perfect in every way. He is now ready to hit the road in August."
