Macau: The 14th International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards and weekend not only celebrated 100 years of Indian cinema, but also showcased talent which form the future of Bollywood as well. The awards focused on a lot of new talent which has emerged in the last few years in the industry, rather than just showcasing performances of veterans.
The performance line up at the celebrity studded celebration included both newcomer as well as veterans. Young actors like Sushant Singh Rajput, Deepika Padukone, Ayushmann Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra performed at the main TATA Motors IIFA awards night, whereas stars like Jacqueline Fernandez, Sonu Sood, Sophie Chaudhary, Arjun Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Hussain Kuwajerwala and Gauhar Khan performed at IIFA Rocks.
Talking about the opportunities given to them by IIFA, Ayushmann Khuranna said that awards like these boost confidence of actors like him. "Award shows for new actors like me give me the right kind of encouragement. I am not a big star who will say that these awards don't matter. I am new to this, I will also be performing here, which is a big opportunity for me," he said.
