In what was a night packed with oodles of glamour and powerful performances, three moments stood out and are sure to go down in the books among the most memorable of all time.
Katrina Kaif presents Style Icon award to Alia Bhatt
Ever since they have been sharing the same platform to promote IIFA, Alia and Katrina have flaunted their camaraderie without any inhibition. They gelled well during filmmaker Karan Johar's Dream Team tour last year and brought the same level of comfort to IIFA. At IIFA Rocks, Kaif, a style icon in her own right, presented the award to Alia on stage as the host Maniesh Paul looked on.

Aditi Rao Hydari makes singing debut with AR Rahman Aditi Rao's social media accounts are testimony to her passion for singing. But at IIFA Rocks, she took that passion to an entire new level as she made her singing debut on stage. As she crooned, music maestro AR Rahman lent support by playing the piano. He had recently composed music for Aditi's Tamil film, Mani Ratnam's romantic drama Kaatru Veliyidai.
Salman Khan sings 'Main Hoon Hero Tera'
Kamaal Khan, who has lent voice to multiple Salman Khan numbers, from 'O O Jaane Jaana' to 'The Radio Song', performed at IIFA Rocks. In an impromptu act, he invited Salman to sing 'Main Hoon Hero Tera' from Nikkhil Advani's 2015 action romance Hero. And guess what, Salman happily obliged.
