This year, we have two new hosts to take us through the musical event of IIFA Rocks – Ayushmann Khurrana and Kartik Aaryan. The young and dynamic duo have made a mark with their unique choice of films and a sensational fan following. Ayushmann has been hosts to quite a few Bollywood events earlier, including an earlier edition of IIFA in 2012. This year, he will be back on stage with his anchoring skills. Kartik Aaryan, on the other hand, is a fresh face on the IIFA stage and this year will be his debut as a host to Bollywood’s biggest event.

Adding a unique charm to the IIFA Rocks, we have the celebrated composer and music director Pritam enthralling us at IIFA 2018. Pritam had performed at earlier editions of IIFA and this year also, he is all set to sweep the audience off their feet with his music.  Known for his eclectic compositions, Pritam will be bringing a lot of new melodies to the event. This year he will present some interesting pieces he has created with local Thai musicians and their traditional instruments. With innovative music, Pritam’s performance would be surely something to look forward to.

One of the most vibrant sections of the IIFA Rocks Night is the Green Carpet, where you can spot your favorite celebrities and B-town legends in their most dazzling avatar. Every year, the leading names of Indian movie industry walk down the Green Carpet at IIFA, donning the most exclusive ensembles you would ever see, amidst thousands of cheering fans and media. This year, we are looking forward to yet another evening of a luxurious affair.

 

Applauding and awarding the winners of the Technical Category

One of the most significant arms of movie production, the technical teams contribute to what makes or breaks a movie. A movie is only good as its screenplay, dialogues, and story. Fine cinematography, editing, sound design, and special effects can define a great final output. Similarly, good music and impactful lyrics, coupled with a powerful voice make the songs of the movie memorable. At IIFA 2018, we had a wide range of technical nominations who ensured an incredible result with their work, and we arrived at the following winners-

Tiger Zinda Hai bagged two awards in the Technical Category with the best cinematography and sound design and was followed by Rajkumar Rao-starrer Newton for best editing. The much-anticipated Jagga Jasoos was at par with three awards for best special effects, best choreography, and best background score. The other winners of Technical awards were Bareilly ki Barfi, Secret Superstar, Jab Harry met Sejal, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, and Baadshaho.

The Myntra Fashion Show

Bollywood and fashion go hand in hand and it’s been that way since the early days of the industry. Therefore, it’s only justified that an iconic fashion brand like Myntra would showcase itself at Bollywood’s most coveted event. For two consecutive years, Myntra has been the official style partner for IIFA. Taking this partnership a step further, Myntra unleashed its new launches with a stunning fashion show in New York last year. This year, at the IIFA Awards in Bangkok, Myntra will enthrall the audience with yet another show-stopping fashion walk, graced by leading models, fashionistas, and celebrities.

In all, with melodious music, a glittering green carpet and an exciting fashion show, the IIFA Rocks Night of 2018 will make for a memorable night!

Shahid Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor to host IIFA Awards in Bali this year?

The latest buzz in the B-town is that Shahid Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor are all set to turn hosts for the prestigious IIFA awards this year. We have an inside khabar that the two dashing actors will host the show in the scenic location of Bali in South East Asia. Though the organisers have not confirmed the news, our well-placed sources have let us on to these details. It sure would be interesting to see the bevy of our favourite Bollywood stars to descend down at the scenic international locale of Bali. The voting for one of the biggest award functions is already on and Shahid Kapoor was present at the press event with Anupam Kher and Anil Kapoor among others. Stay tuned on Bollywood Hungama for more updates on the same.

Last year, the prestigious IIFA trophy was bagged by Sonam Kapoor for Neerja and the best actress was Alia Bhatt for Udta Punjab and Shahid Kapoor for the same film. This year, we are curious to know who wins what. Speaking about the hosts, Shahid Kapoor has had a fantastic year. His movie Padmaavat has made record breaking business at the box office, his highest. Things are definitely looking up for him as he is all set to expand his family and entertain us with interesting movies like Batti Gul Meter Chalu soon.

Ranbir Kapoor, on the other hand, is on the cusp of reclaiming his super stardom with Sanju (Sanjay Dutt biography) and Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra. Just recently, he officially announced a new film with one of the biggest studios of the nation: Yash Raj Films. The new movie is titled Shamshera and shows Ranbir in a warrior like avatar.

IIFA is one award show which has been a talking point in the industry since many decades.
