Initially, SIIMA for this year was planned for June 20 and 21, but later got postponed to September due to 100 years of Indian cinema jubilee festivities. The ceremony was hosted by Arya, Shriya Saran, Rana Daggubati and Sonu Sood at the Expo Centre Sharjah, while the Generation Next Awards Night, which happened a day before was hosted by Parvathy Omanakuttan and Ash Chandler.
