Nepal is not yet announced as a host for IIFA Awards


Recognized as a major international event and one that brings people together, IIFA- the International Indian Film Academy Awards, Indian cinema’s biggest and grandest annual global celebration is in an advanced mode finalizing the destination of the next IIFA, which has had fans guessing about the destination and country.

Considering the compelling benefits, several countries and destinations are always interested in hosting the IIFAs. Over the last 19 years over 14 unique cities, 12 different countries and 4 continents have had the privilege of hosting the glamour-studded IIFA which is rich in business opportunities. In its 20th year, IIFA remains the most sought-after annual event by tourism and economic policy makers to boost their economies.

Keeping this in mind several countries and picturesque destinations are in the consideration set. While there have been several unconfirmed stories coming from Nepal about the Himalayan nation being the chosen one, the IIFA management would like to confirm that while Nepal is one of the destinations being considered, no final decision has been taken so far.

Fans, media and stakeholders of IIFA are advised not to believe the rumors or statements about Nepal having been chosen as the destination for the next IIFA. While IIFA respects the passion and wishes of its fans in Nepal and the country’s government and Tourism board, IIFA’s management team continues to deliberate, consider and weigh its options; IIFA fans are advised not to make any travel plans at this point.
