Bollywood Stars Take Over Times Square Ahead Of IIFA

"We are thrilled to bring in India's biggest and most spectacular global celebration of cinema and we can't wait for IIFA to take over the City of NY and America". It is highly commendable that, in spite of the inclement weather, they went ahead and put up a super show. On Friday evening, a few hours after the show began, it was only Rahman who took the stage for his culminating performance. This IIFA property will have more musical performances.

The 18th edition of the IIFA weekend and awards kick started today with a bell ring at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) by Sonakshi Sinha. But, this year the rain spoiled all the plans. It had been raining all day and the green carpet for "IIFA Rocks" was cancelled. At the press conference which happened on Thursday, July 13, Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Kriti Sanon and Sushant Singh Rajput were seen onstage. "So, coming back to NY is always special", he added. "If it does rain tomorrow, it will be awesome dancing in the rain at IIFA", tweeted Salman, who is a star performer for the main IIFA Awards night here on Saturday. The singer recently lent his voice to two songs in superstar's last release, Tubelight and IIFA Rocks too witnessed their love as the superstar joined him on stage.
