Bollywood divas Deepika Padukone, Madhuri Dixit Nene and Sridevi Boney Kapoor are set to give out sizzling performances at the 14th edition of International Indian Film Academy Awards (IIFA).

Scheduled to begin on 4 July, the three-day long extravagance will be held at the 15,000-seat Cotai Arena in the Venetian Macao.

Madhuri's performance at IIFA will be her first at the award ceremony. While she along with Deepika and Sridevi will give out performances which will be choreographed by Remo D'souza, talented dancer cum choreographer Prabhu Deva will set the stage on fire with his splendid moves from "Muqabala" and various other hit songs.

IIFA is set to celebrate 100 years of Indian Cinema and Madhuri will be seen performing to some of her famous numbers including "Ek Do Teen", "Dance of Envy" and her recent item song from Ranbir and Deepika starrer "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani".

Expressing her excitement the 46-year-old actress said, "I have never been to an IIFA before and I'm very excited to be performing on the IIFA stage for the first time. I think that it a great fit especially since we're celebrating 100 years of Indian Cinema," IANS reported.

Deepika, who is on cloud nine after the overwhelming success of her recent film "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" said, "I'll be performing to some of my favourite songs from my recent release Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Cocktail. This will also be my first visit to Macau and I hope my fans enjoy my performance."

Earlier, Abhishek Bachchan had revealed that he would be performing at the event but as per recent reports, the actor will also play host. Although no formal announcement has been made, it is rumoured that actress Jacqueline Fernandez will co-host the award ceremony with Abhishek.

According to earlier reports, all members of the Bachchan family might also show up at the event this time. The Bachchan clan had a tiff with the organisers of the IIFA in 2010, following which they had shunned the award ceremony held in Sri Lanka due to protests by Tamil groups against Ash and Abhi for their film "Ravaan".

As the Indian Cinema celebrates 100 years of its journey, it is expected that all the bigwigs of the Industry including Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan , Aamir Khan and Ajay Devgn,who seldom attend any award functions, might turn up for the event.
