After its entry in Cannes, screening of the Aishwarya Rai starrer Provoked will be the highlight of the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards ceremony to be inaugurated on June 14 in Dubai.

The film festival, besides showing famous Hindi movies like Parineeta and Bluffmaster , will also provide a feast of regional movies to film lovers for the first time, an official from Wizcraft International Ltd, the event managers for IIFA, said in New Delhi adding last year only one regional movie Shwaas in Marathi language had made entry.




Directed by Jagmohan Mundhra of Bawandar fame, 'Provoked' deals with the issue of domestic violence and is based on a true story of an Indian housewife in London and has earned good reviews from critics.

Unveiling the three-day schedule for the extravaganza of Indian films, "most of the biggest Indian stars, including South Indian actors like Mammootty , Mohanlal and even some famous Hollywood names are expected to attend the awards ceremony and the other related functions in Dubai," he said.

Apart from the annual charity function, media briefings and a rare interaction between the film stars and their fans, this year IIFA would also launch a book capturing the essence of the Indian film cinema, he said.

Trying to shed the pro-Bollywood image, 14 regional movies have been included in the festival, which will also have two-day Global Business Forum in collaboration with FICCI.
