Showbiz & Celebrity Jun 29, 2018
It was a night to remember in Bangkok as the stars descended in the city last weekend to celebrate the 19th edition of International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards. Check out our favourite blockbuster celeb moments from IIFA 2018 Awards!
The late Sridevi was awarded the Best Actress award posthumously for her role in MOM. Her husband Boney Kapoor accepted the award and gave an emotional speech. “I dedicate this award to the entire team of MOM. I have mixed emotions today. I miss her every minute and second of my life. I still feel she is around here….I want you all to support Janhvi like you supported her mother.”
Irrfan Khan, who is currently undergoing treatment for cancer, won the Best Actor award for Hindi Medium while Tumhari Sulu won for Best Picture.
The performances were also very entertaining as Bollywood’s talented actors shook a leg and danced to hit numbers, including Rekha (who stunned the crowd by recreating her iconic dance numbers in full costume) , Varun Dhawan, Arjun Kapoor, Kriti Sanon and Shraddha Kapoor.
Anil Kapoor handed Anupam Kher with the Outstanding Achievement Award, calling Kher his biggest confidante and the best actor in Indian cinema today. Check out the winners and the highlights of the IIFA Awards 2018.
