As Bollywood gears up for the 15th International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) weekend that kickstarts on Wednesday (April 23), Mumbai is also getting ready to cast their vote on April 24.
Interestingly, while most celebrities are encouraging their fans to vote, many of them will not even be present in the city on the day of the elections.
Shahid Kapoor and Vivek Oberoi were the first to arrive at Tampa Bay. Their fellow actors including Saif Ali Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Richa Chadda and Shabana Azmi left for Florida on April 21, clearly giving the elections a miss.
However, actors Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Aamir Khan will leave for Florida only after casting their votes.
Sonam Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar and Ranbir Kapoor will also make a late arrival at Tampa Bay, as they too will attend the awards only after the elections.
