Double the fun is promised at IIFA 2013 as Shahrukh Khan and Shahid Kapoor, both thorough entertainers, will be co-hosting the award show on the final day of the three-day Bollywood gala in Macau.
Shahrukh had been dissociated with IIFA for many years but returned to the annual Bollywood carnival last year at IIFA Toronto with a stellar stage performance. This year, however, he may stay away from any dance performance as he is still recuperating from a shoulder surgery, but he will join hands with Shahid Kapoor to host the award ceremony.
Shahid is quoted as saying by HT: “I have hosted with SRK sir before and it’s always a privilege sharing a platform with him.”
Yes, this won’t be the first time that Shahrukh Khan and Shahid Kapoor would host an award show together. They have hosted two award shows before and they both have been terrific.
Humour is always the underlying element in the Shahrukh-Shahid banter on stage as the hosts. Expect truckloads of fun at the IIFA in Macau as well.
The 14th edition of Videocon DDB IIFA (International Indian Film Academy) weekend will start July 4 and the award ceremony will be held on July 6 at the 15,000-seat Cotai Arena in The Venetian Macao.
The awards nite will see performances by a host of stars and celebs, including Madhuri Dixit, who will give her debut IIFA performance this year.
