Injuries have become the order of the day at IIFA 2018. The latest celebrity to back out from his performance is Shahid Kapoor, who is suffering from severe back spasm after performing a tricky step during rehearsals. Before Shahid, Befikre star Vaani Kapoor too backed out as she also injured herself while rehearsing for her performance a few days back. We also had Sonu Ki Titu ki Sweety actor Kartik Aaryan who suffered a ligament tear. But worry not as the organisers have managed to rope in other actors in the nick of time to replace these performers.

In place of Vaani Kapoor, we will now have television diva Mouni Roy performing at IIFA. What about Shahid? Well, our Sonu has got it covered. Kartik, who had earlier backed out due to injury, has agreed to perform and host the awards despite his ligament tear. Other actors, who would have been under pressure to make up for the last-minute exits, are now heaving a sigh of relief, said our source from Bangkok.
