The much awaited IIFA 2017 is all set to take place on the 14th of July, in New York, with the who’s who of B-town in attendance. A few weeks back, we witnessed an entertaining press conference for the event that had Salman Khan, Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif speaking about their films and the upcoming prestigious award ceremony. Following that, last evening, Bollywood boys, Varun Dhawan, Saif Ali Khan and Karan Johar took to the stage to interact with the media, and boy was it an interaction to remember! Karan Johar brought forward his witty best, while Varun Dhawan played the cute boy next door and Saif chose to maintain his calm yet quirky demeanour. By the way, did you know Varun Dhawan is going to be hosting IIFA alongside Saif Ali Khan and Karan Johar? KJo commented on the association saying, “IIFA will be live this time, so there will be no editing. It is actually making sure that your script is audience friendly because you’re not connection to 40,000 people in the audience, but eventually to 40 million people, who would watch it live on television.” Wow! These three on stage hosting IIFA, completely unfiltered? This event already seems all sorts of amazing!
Here are some of the interesting moments from the press conference:
1) Varun Dhawan confirmed his debut performance on the big stage saying that he was going to perform to songs from his father, David Dhawan’s films. Varun revealed that he will be dancing to “Oonchi Hai Building” and “Tan Tana Tan”, both the songs that’ll also feature in the remake of Judwaa.
2) Karan Johar who is a mentor to Varun Dhawan spoke about his nervousness while seeing the actor perform. He said, ““Whenever he performs, I get worried, because Varun has no sense of self-control while performing or doing something. He goes mad, but that’s also what’s great about him.” Haha we love his infectious energy, don’t we!
3) When Varun expressed his feelings about live stage shows being tough and complex that one tends to forget the dance steps, Saif gave him a nice piece of advice. He told him to take his shirt off and blow some kisses into the crowd in the occasion of forgetting a step. Well said Saif! #WinkWink
4) Varun found himself in a dilemma when he was asked who he finds more charming between Alia and Katrina. Considering he’s worked with both of them in the past, the actor hesitantly replied saying that both are beautiful girls and great performers and he wouldn’t be able to choose among the two. #Awkward
Amazing hosts along with spectacular star performances by Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Shahid Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajput, this event is undoubtedly going to be mind-blowing!
