IIFA 2014 is around the corner. As the prestigious awards are coming closer, celebrities are gearing up to make it a fun filled evening. Every year, IIFA has some brilliant hosts who add wit and humour to the event.
From Shahid Kapoor to Salman Khan, the IIFA becomes interesting for the viewers and audience, IIFA 2014 is also special like the other years. Saif Ali Khan will host the IIFA Magic of the Movies & Technical Awards, while the main award show will be hosted by Shahid Kapoor and Farhan Akhtar.
While the hosts bring entertainment, celebrities groove on the stage on their hit songs and acts. Performances add a special charm to the award shows in Bollywood. Until and unless we don't see latkas and khatkas, the event looks dull. So, to bring the Indian charm on the international platform, a lot of stars perform on their stages and make the awards night all the more memorable. For example, Amitabh, Abhishek and Aishwarya dancing together on one stage was a treat to the eyes.
Apart from the dance performances, IIFA hosts perform some funny acts which are still fresh in our mind. For example the Ruby dance of Arjun Rampal, Karan Johar and Shilpa Shetty on the stage of IIFA 2011 was funny and very sporty! Hosts Ritesh Deshmukh and Boman Irani made these stars groove on the stage wearing lehenga skirts and carrying a fur shrug.
