Bollywood stars are all set to give the audiences a night to remember this year at the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards. Loaded with riveting performances, dances and stage acts along with the award-distribution, the 19th IIFA Awards will be held at Bangkok’s Siam Niramit Theatre as IIFA returns to the Thailand capital after a decade.

Before the gala night, the winners of the awards in the technical category were announced on 22 June. Anurag Basu-directed Jagga Jasoos emerged as the big winner; the Ranbir Kapoor-starrer bagged three awards for best background score, choreography and special effects. The film, in spite of receiving critical appreciation, failed to make a mark at the box office upon its release on 14 July, 2017.
