The 15th edition of the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) that is said to be the Bollywood Oscars kick started on April 23 at Tampa Bay, Florida with the launch of IIFA Stomp.
Bollywood stars Priyanka Chopra, Anil Kapoor and Vivek Oberoi, who have already landed in the USA for the awards, sent the crowd into fan frenzy.
IIFA Stomp was a free party celebrating Bollywood music and food. The night had a whole lot of dancing and partying.
The official IIFA song, ‘Do Da Tampa’ was the highlight of the Stomp. It is a collaboration between DJ Ravidrums, known to some local Tampa Chamberlain High graduates as Rari Jakhotia, and Bay area musician Gumbi Ortiz.
Vivek Oberoi posted a picture of himself at IIFA Stomp.
