The International Indian Film Academy Awards (IIFA) awards were held last month at Bangkok, ending the annual awards season. This year the highlight of the awards night was a scintillating performance by the eternal diva Rekha along with a performance by Ranbir Kapoor, ahead of his big release Sanju that went on to break box-office records. While true film buffs don't mind travelling to the exotic destinations where IIFA is held each year, not everyone is that lucky. This weekend, however, you can catch all the excitement as Colors TV Middle East will be telecasting the entire awards night. So if you are one of those who can't have enough of watching your favourite Bollywood star performing on stage and getting a peek of their candid moments, don't forget to tune in from Friday (July 27) to Sunday (July 29).
The schedule is as below.
Hosted by Kartik Aaryan and Ayushmann Khurrana, this year, IIFA Rocks, the event that's a precursor to the main night got bad publicity because of the allegedly stale and not-so-savoury jokes cracked by the duo. Watch it and decide for yourself.
