They have great following in India but Bollywood stars, who are attending the International Indian Film Academy technical awards, have equally devoted crowd here.
Hundreds of fans lined up the IIFA green carpet to catch a glimpse of their favourite stars and sometimes the best way to get a star-studded selfie was to sing songs from their movies.
Anil Kapoor was happy and surprised to see fans chanting ‘One Two Ka Four’ from his 1989 hit ‘Ram Lakhan’.
“It feels great to see so many fans here. IIFA is a huge platform and we are glad to be part of it,” Kapoor said.
While Vivek Oberoi was asked to star in another adult comedy by his cheeky fans. “There is so much energy here. Fans are shouting ‘Grand Masti’. There is a demand for a third film again. I think it should come. But I will have to ask my wife if I can do it,” Vivek joked.
Hrithik Roshan, who will be dancing for the main award show tonight, is excited to be performing in the US after ten years.
“It feels like first time… it feels great. I am here to entertain my fans,” Hrithik said.
Technical awards, which were announced earlier, were given away on the third day of the ceremony hosted by Saif Ali Khan and Vir Das.
Those who attended the ceremony last night included Madhuri Dixit with her husband Ram Nene, Sridevi with husband Boney Kapoor and her two daughters, Hrithik Roshan, Deepika Padukone, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Shatrughan Sinha, Vivek Oberoi with wife Priyanka, Rajkumar Hirani, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and sportsman Milkha Singh, whose life story ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ won nine trophies in the technical categories.
The other stars who walked the green carpet were Randhir Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Parineeti Chopra, Govinda, Anupam Kher, Richa Chadda, Bipasha Basu, Sonu Sood, Aditi Rao Hydari, Siddharth Malhotra, Vir Das, Boman Irani, Shankar Mahadevan, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Mukesh Bhatt, Ramesh Sippy, Gauhar Khan and others.
