Last year, Tampa, Florida hosted the International Indian Film Academy Awards Weekend, festival and workshops. For a few days, “Bollywood” glitz and glamour was in the Tampa Bay area and the area celebrated India’s culture, too. Many fans of Indian films came out to see Anil Kapoor and celebrities. American actors and producers Kevin Spacey, John Travolta and Stephen Baldwin also attended.
This year IIFA members voted to bring “Bollywood” to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in June.
“We are very happy to announce that IIFA will be traveling to Malaysia this year. We had a great Weekend in Malaysia 13 years ago when we went to the Genting Highlands and the country has welcomed us back. With its rich and diverse culture and the sheer beauty of the city of Kuala Lumpur we’re absolutely certain this year’s IIFA celebration will be a sight to behold,” said Andre Timmings, Director, Wizcraft International Entertainment.
Over the last 15 years, the IIFA Awards (“Bollywood”) has traveled to the United States, (Tampa), the United Kingdom, Europe, Middle East, Southeast Asia, South Africa, Sri Lanka and Canada.
