IIFA 2018 is turning out to be a star-studded night with high octane drama and amazing performances. The Khans and other big stars might have given it a miss, but the dhamekedaar performances are lighting up the night.
First up was Kartik Aaryan. He paid a tribute to the genius of Salman Khan by performing on his blockbuster number Swag Se Swagat from Tiger Zinda Hai (2017).
Iulia Vantur lit up the stage with her magical act.
Arjun Kapoor too danced with his gang a little while later.
Soon, Arjun moved on to his main performance of the night with Kriti Sanon.
Coming to talk of the show itself, a couple of hours ago, we brought to you the pictures from the green carpet of the big nite. The first set of celebs to arrive at the event were Anil Kapoor, Kriti Sanon, Arjun Kapoor, Urvashi Rautela and Anupam Kher among others.
The awards gala is being held in Bangkok and Karan Johar and Ritiesh Deshmukh entertained the audience with their banter on-stage.
IIFA Rocks took place on Friday and had a bevy of celebs such as Arjun Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Karan Johar, Kriti Sanon, Shraddha Kapoor and Dia Mirza among others walk the green carpet.
The event was packed with drama wherein Dia Mirza grooved to Tip Tip Barsa Paani song from Mohra (1994) with hosts Kartik Aaryan and Ayushmann. Arjun Kapoor too danced on Hum Kaale Hai Toh Kya Hua from Gumnaam (1965). A behind the stage video where Varun, Shraddha and Arjun are seen dancing on Sonam Kapoor’s Tareefan with Arjun imitates Kareena’s pout while dancing also took social media by storm.
While many stars performed tonight, unfortunately Shahid Kapoor pulled out of the show, last moment. You may recall, we reported that Shahid suffered a back spasm while rehearsing for a tricky step for his performance at IIFA. The doctors advised him rest and no physical activity because of which the actor bowed out of the show.
