If you didn’t already see, Team AVS had a blast at Bollywood’s biggest award show, IIFA 2015! The 3 day adventure was filled with fun, dances, music, and lots of starry celebs. Here’s a roundup of our top 8 moments in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!
1. Ranveer Singh & Arjun Kapoor
The dynamic duo lit the stage with their comic timing, impromptu dances, and a memorable tribute to Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge! Everyone throughout the show kept complimenting both babas on their hosting capabilities, and they set the tone for the unforgettable evening.
2. Javed Ali & Nooran Sisters
During the IIFA Rocks event, singers Javed Ali and the Nooran Sisters gave an amazing performance that left us with goosebumps! As a tribute to their guru, AR Rahman, they belted out songs such as Khwaja Mere Khwaja, Patakha Guddi, and Dil Se.
At the kick off press conference, all of the Bollywood stars were presented with an orangutan stuffed animal! Representing the native Malaysian animal, everyone on stage danced with their new toy. Look at how cute they all look!
4. Hrithik’s Performance
IIFA 2015 truly did save the best for last. Hrithik Roshan’s performance ended the awards night, and we were left with our mouth agape! India’s Greek God danced to songs from Bang Bang – catch a glimpse of his performance here:
5. Dil Dhadakne Do Screening
How cool is it that we got to watch Dil Dhadakne Do with the cast! Farhan Akhtar talked about funny incidents that happened on set, while Priyanka Chopra thanked Zoya Akhtar for the incredible journey shooting for the film. Anupam Kher and Anurag Kashyap were also in the same movie hall as us! Check out our review of the film here.
6. Shankar Ehsan Loy’s Music Workshop
The three music legends gave a small audience a unique opportunity to see how music is created and edited for films! The talented singers answered questions about their first collaboration in the movie Dus and also told us about their upcoming projects.
7. Fashion Extravanganza
Ace designers Gaurang Shah, Masaba Gupta, and Rocky S brought their A-game to Malaysia and displayed their exquisite creations at the IIFA Fashion Extravaganza. Some of the show stoppers for the fashion show included Sonu Sood, Bipasha Basu, Malaika Arora Khan, Dia Mirza, and Aditi Rao Hydari.
8. The Hotel
We stayed at the Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel, which was right in the heart of the city! Our room had a beaming view of the Petronas Towers, the service was brilliant, and the staff was super warm and friendly. Since it was an action packed weekend, there was no better place to come back to and unwind! We highly recommend this hotel if you’re ever in Kuala Lumpur.
Hopefully this gave you a taste of what last weekend was all about! What was your favorite part from the event? #AVSatIIFA
