The leading lady starred opposite Ram Charan Teja has left to Durban, South Africa. Read on to know why this international face has gone abroad leaving her movie behind.
Just a few days back we saw the images of Ranveer Singh and Tusshar Kapoor leaving to Durban for South Africa India Film and Television Awards (SAIFTA). As the day of the grand event has finally arrived, we see that more Bollywood celebrities have left to SAIFTA. Yes, SAIFTA is the reason for Piggy Chops had to leave the country during a crucial time.
While some celebrities were packing bags and boarding flights, a few celebs including Ranveer Singh, Siddharth Malhotra and Dia Mirza were part of a pre SAIFTA press conference. It looks like the B-Town is all set for this event that is aimed at boosting tourism, business tie-ups and promotion of both countries as ideal film locations.
This event which will take place today, September 6 will be by hosted beauty queen Dia Mirza and filmmaker Karan Johar. Dia reached there before Karan and was part of the pre event preparations.
