Arjun can"t attend the event, as he is going to promote his upcoming release Raajneeti by Prakash Jha, which has invited lots of controversies including his love-making scene with a theatre actress. He cleared it on his Twitter page, “Will not be going to IIFA, have a charity event in Hong Kong for Raajneeti that day."
Arjun had earlier said that he had observed young politicians like Rahul Gandhi, Sachin Pilot, Milind Deora, the young Rajiv Gandhi and the young Sanjay Gandhi to know their mannerism and body language for his role in the film.
Raajneeti, which is releasing on June 4, also features Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Ajay Devgn, Naseeruddin Shah, Manoj Bajpai and Nana Patekar.
Big names in Bollywood from Amitabh Bachchan to Shahrukh Khan to Salman Khan have confirmed their presence at the upcoming International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards 2010 but Arjun Rampal will miss it.
