5 things about IIFA 2016

The star performers

Yup, we were the first ones to tell you that Salman Khan, Deepika, Hrithik, Priyanka, Sonakshi and Tiger will be performing at the event. Did we disappoint you?

Priyanka – Deepika Cold War?

Yes, they chatted with each other when they were attending the press conference. But something about their body language told us that there were some cold vibes going on between these two. This was later confirmed by a rumour that Deepika refused to dance on Pinga with Priyanka.

Hrithik Roshan avoids Salman Khan

There is another cold war going on between Hrithik Roshan and Salman Khan, when the latter dissed former’s film, Guzaarish, long ago. We noticed Hrithik avoided the IIFA press con which had Salman Khan, even though he was also a performer. This made us deduce that Hrithik would do the same on awards night as well, and that’s exactly what happened! After his opening act, Hrithik did all he can to avoid Salman. Even when Salman called rest of the performers to join him as he danced to Pinga, Hrithik was nowhere to be found!

Sridevi gives the event a miss despite the organisers wanting to give her an award

Sridevi was supposed to get the outstanding achievement award at IIFA this year. However, we had reported that the actress will give the event a miss, since she had some issues with the award itself it seems. And like we predicted, she was a no show!

Tiger Shroff to play tribute to MJ and Hrithik

Tiger Shroff had always look upto Hrithik and Michael Jackson when it came to his dancing skills. We had reported that his IIFA act will be a tribute to both his idols, and that’s what happened!
