The gala will be held June 22-24 at the Siam Niramit Theatre, which is adorned by Thailand's heritage, art and culture and hosts the country's most-popular theatre production. The main awards gala on the last day will be hosted by the inimitable Riteish Deshmukh and Karan Johar, both known for their quick wit. Among the performers will be stars like Ranbir Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor.
