The 14th edition of the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) has kickstarted in Macau and both Abhishek Bachchan and Shahid Kapoor had an eventful first day.
Bollywood actors Abhishek Bachchan and Shahid Kapoor left handprints in a special cement mould as a part of the 14th International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards and celebrations, which kick started in Macau on Thursday.
Abhishek, who will also perform at the awards function Saturday after a gap of few years, was looking forward to the function.
"It has been an eventful morning...welcome to Macau! I was here in 2009, when I performed. It will be a very exciting weekend. IIFA is one such event where we get to showcase the (Indian) film industry. There will be a lot of activity here," he said at a press conference organised here.
Abhishek Bachchan's performance also marks an end to the so-called tiff between the Bachchans and IIFA, which cropped up in 2010 when IIFA was organised in Sri Lanka.
IIFA promises a great weekend where the award function will be co-hosted by Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan and Shahid and stars, including the 1990s divas Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit as well as Abhishek, Sushant Singh Rajput, Deepika Padukone, Ayushmann and Parineeti are set the stage on fire with their performances.
