Several B-town stars Shahid Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Anil Kapoor, Gulshan Grover, Vir Das, Gauhar Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Saif Ali Khan and others sent the crowd into fan frenzy when they walked the green carpet at Tampa International airport.
On 23 April night, IIFA Stomp party was held in Tampa's Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, which celebrated Bollywood music. The IIFA Stomp party was open to the public for free.
"We always were confident that the people from the Indian community would be here," said Janak Vora, an IIFA organizer who has been working in Tampa for months, told Tampa Bay Times. "But what we were also keen upon was that the broader community would be able to come in and see something of Bollywood without spending a single dollar."
The four day award show is being held in Florida, US, for the first time ever. This year the award show has an impressive line-up of Bollywood celebrities with Madhuri Dixit Nene, Shatrughan Sinha, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and Farhan Akhtar who are expected to arrive in the city for the event.
Nene along with husband, Roshan, Kareena, Boman Irani have already left for US, while the show host Farhan, Vidya Balan, Shah Rukh Khan and other celebs are expected to leave US on Thursday night after casting their vote for the Lok Sabha Elections 2014 in Mumbai.
