THE WINNERS OF THE IIFA 2018 AWARDS

The biggest stars of Bollywood came together for the International Film Awards 2018 in Bangkok, Thailand, to celebrate the best of Indian cinema from the last 12 months.

The prestigious award ceremony was held at Bangkok’s Sian Niramit theatre last night, and was hosted by director and producer Karan Johar and actor Riteish Deshmukh who brought many laughs and a bit of Bhangra to the stage throughout the glamourous night.

The star-studded night was full of surprises and performances from some of the biggest Bollywood stars such as Arjun Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor, Kartik Aaryan and many others. Bobby Deol, who recently made his comeback to the big screen after five years, performed Race 3’s new song ‘Party Chale On’. The audience also had a chance to see Anil Kapoor, Karan Johar and Ritesh Deshmukh dancing to Veere Di Wedding’s huge hit ‘Tareefan’, which was a hit with the IIFA crows.

The IIFA Awards 2018 paid tribute to the late actors Sridevi and Shashi Kapoor. Sridevi was awarded the Best Female actor for Mom, and husband Boney Kapoor, picked up the trophy in her honour and said:

I have mixed emotions today. I miss her every minute and second of my life. I still feel she is around here….I want you all to support Janhvi like you supported her mother…
