Fans can expect to enjoy performances by celebs like Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Ranveer Singh, Vicky Kaushal, Jassie Gill, Sara Ali Khan, Kartik Aaryan, among others. Pictures and videos of the stars rehearsing are already out on social media that further ignited the excitement level.

The award show will have Ayushmann Khurrana and his brother Aparshakti Khurana as the hosts. The sibling duo is known for their bromance, and they are likely to leave the audience in splits. Ayushmann himself shared the news of them hosting the show on social media.

Amidst all the performances and fun, winners of the respective awards including best film, best actor, best actress, etc. will be announced. IIFA Awards is known for its fun quotient and electrifying performances by the stars, and we expect nothing less this year as well.


While the full show will be telecast some days later on Colors Viacom18, people can watch glimpses of the event live online. IIFA has its own social media handles that will put out all the major happenings from the event. Also, there are multiple fan pages that always post pictures and videos from the event on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
