For 25 years, Suniel Shetty has been supporting his late mother-in-law’s NGO, Save the Child. So when wife Mana asked him to associate with the Bryan Adam concert, he readily agreed.

“I am a big fan of Bryan Adams and have attended his concert earlier too. But this February, when he comes to India, I will be touring four cities --Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Delhi -- with him. I know most of his songs by heart. I’ll brush up on them so that I can hum along with him,” Shetty smiles. Like Adams, Shetty believes in the

18 till I die

philosophy. The actor, who will turn 50 next year, attributes his youthful looks and attitude to the fact that he engages in a lot of sports and adventure activities. “I play squash, cricket, work out, swim and play tennis with my 15-year-old son. I am more fit now than I was 18,” he asserts.

Suniel Shetty Up next

Shetty’s last release, three months ago, was

Red Alert

. The Naxal drama was not a commercial hit but earned him plenty of critical acclaim. Now, Anees Bazmee’s

No Problem

is coming up on December 10. He plays a negative role in the laugh riot and is hopeful that it will make the cash counters jingle.

He has also completed shooting for another Bazmee’s film,

Thank You

, another comedy but this role does not have shades of gray. There’s also Anil Sharma’s untitled film about capital punishment that releases next year.

No to production

Two films — Loot starring Shetty himself and

Mumbai Chakachak

featuring Rahul Bose and Ayesha Dharker — from his production house are also lining up for a release early next year.

Shetty admits he has put a freeze on further productions: “I don’t know which way the industry is headed so I am confused about what kind of movies to make,” he admits. “Costs are up and there is no guarantee of recovery. I don’t want to take on added stress. I’d rather sing with Bryan.”
