IIFA Awards Fever In Toronto

Bollywood stars started descending here for the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards June 25. Crowds of admirers went wild when Anil Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Zayed Khan, Bobby Deol and Arshad Warsi stepped out of the airport terminal.Wearing a spiked-up hairstyle and dark glasses, Anil Kapoor said, "I am just going to have a good time. I am looking forward to every moment.'' The Slumdog Millionaire actor, who was here in January with Preity Zinta to formally announce the hosting of IIFA Awards in Toronto, said the Bollywood show would spell "happiness, colour and a lot of fun'' for audiences.
Dia Mirza, who will perform at the awards ceremony, said she felt excited "to know there's such a large community here that loves Indian cinema.'' There was noisy welcome also for Bobby Deol who will perform with father Dharmendra and brother Sunny at the awards. Mobbed by autograph-seeking fans, Bobby said he was excited but "more nervous'' about his performance at the mega-show. Zayed Khan told the screaming crowd that he couldn't wait to " explore'' as he left the airport for the city. Arshad Warsi and Sonu Sood were quickly whisked away by IIFA organizers in waiting vehicles. In keeping with the IIFA aim of promoting awareness about global warming, Bollywood stars were accorded a green-carpet welcome at the airport.
