Masala! Awards 2017 is just around the corner and the excitement is building up to the next level. With just a week to go, we’re all set for the biggest Bollywood extravaganza of the year! With stars gracing the red carpet and setting the stage on fire with amazing performances, this 10th year of the prestigious Awards is going to be bigger and better!
And, the time that you’ve all been waiting for is finally here! We’re all set to announce the dhamakedaar entertainment that’ll unfold on the 13th December. So, without further ado, here’s announcing the roll call of A-listers who will sparkle on the night.
Woo-hoo! Yes, our favourite Raja Babu Govinda will relive his magic on stage. The 90s will come alive once again with the eternal Hero No. 1.
Her performance in soaps like Pavitra Rishta made Ankita Lokhande a household name while her dance moves in the reality show Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa won her more fans. Now, Ankita has taken off on a whole new plane – she will soon be making her debut in the big budget Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi alongside Kangana Ranaut. We can’t wait to watch her sword-fighting and horse-riding on screen. But before that, we can’t wait to watch her set the Masala! Awards stage on fire with her dance moves.
The Emirati singer is a popular name in the music circuit in the UAE, impressing one and all with his vocal abilities and love for Bollywood. Adel has come up with a special ‘Masala!’ song in honour of a decade of Masala! Awards.
Bilal Saeed Ft. Mustafa Khan
Remember the soulful Khair Mangdi? The voice behind that song is Bilal Saeed, the popular singer-songwriter, music producer and music composer. Bilal will enthrall audiences and giving him company is yet another prodigious local talent, young Mustafa Khan, whose Bollywood mash-up last year made him a UAE sensation.
HOSTS FOR THE EVENING
He is sharp, articulate and very, very witty. Boman Irani is the host for the Masala! Awards this year, so the 800-odd guest list can expect more than a few laugh out loud moments on stage. But wait there’s more! Boman has a very special talent that will be revealed on the big night… watch this space!
Promoting local talent has always been Masala!’s objective and the Masala! Awards is an apt reflection of the sentiment. Salman Qureshi, one of the funniest men in the UAE, has written the sparkling script, bringing his own brand of humour to the evening. Salman will co-host a segment of the event, doubling up the laughter quotient.
