Discussing IIFA 2017 international relevance, Katrina's birthday, lifetime achievement award
As we inch closer to the IIFA awards 2017, we at Firstpost sat down for a discussion about the prestigious awards.
In the 30 minute long chat, Vikram Thapa and Swetha Ramakrishnan discuss how IIFA is especially relevant this year since we've seen a global level excitement for hindi films, with the success of Baahubali: The Conclusion and Dangal.
What's also important is that this year, no Pakistani actors have been nominated at the IIFA awards. While Filmfare nominated Fawad Khan and Ali Zafar in their categories, it seems like IIFA was being extra cautious of the Pakistani artistes ban.
It's also Katrina Kaif's birthday on 16th August, which makes it double the fun for her as she's in New York for her birthday and also sees a release this week with Jagga Jasoos.
Watch our IIFA discussion for more insight on the 2 day extravaganza.
