Shahid, 33, said he was eagerly waiting to see Hrithik dance at IIFA awards.
"I am excited to see Hrithik dance, I haven't seen him perform since quite sometime. He is the best dancer in the industry," Shahid told reporters here at International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards press meet.
The actor was impressed by Hrithik after watching his hit movie 'Koi Mil Gaya'.
Shahid recently wrapped up the shooting for his upcoming film 'Haider', which is directed by Vishal Bharadwaj.
'Haider' also stars Irrfan Khan, Tabu and Kay Kay Menon. It is slated to hit theatres on September 12.
