The 16th annual IIFA awards took place on 7th June this year, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.  Bollywood stars flew into the country to attend those awards and give an ode of appreciation to the Indian film industry.

The International Indian Film Academy Awards – also called the IIFA awards – are an annual event that honours the talent of Bollywood. The awards are presented by the Indian International Film Academy and are given to both artists, like actors and directors, as well as those in charge of technical aspects of film-making.

Priyanka Chopra, Hrithik Roshan, Anil Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Vivek Oberoi, Deepika Padukone, and Sri Devi were in attendance – to name only a few of the A-list stars who flew out to Malaysia for the event.

It was a very extravagant affair, full of many delightful moments for any Bollywood fan. A number of Bollywood stars performed at the event, including the likes of Hrithik Roshan, Shraddha Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Anushka Sharma, Shahid Kapoor and many more.

However, notably missing were some big name celebrities like Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, and Amitabh Bachchan and his family. Naturally, the stars have their own schedules to consider.

Despite the absences, the affair was overall a very successful and entertaining one. Many deserving talents won the appreciation of the academy and left the night with an IIFA award to decorate their mantel.
