Salman Khan will be performing after a gap of four years but the superstar says he won't be able to dance like Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff. He said, "I haven't thought about it (performance) yet. But don't expect me to dance like Hrithik and Tiger."
Salman couldn't be part of the awards previously due to his busy schedule. "I was doing films back to back. So couldn't do it," he said.
Salman is excited to travel across the city of Madrid. "I am looking forward to explore Madrid and spread a lot of love," he added.
At the press conference, Salman also hummed few lines of his hit track Hangover from Kick along with Meet Brothers.
Anil Kapoor is also looking forward to have Salman at IIFA and have a great time with him. "This year is about Salman Khan. He is going to IIFA after quite some time. We had fun but not that much as we have when Salman is there. When Salman is there its like family. We go to his room have fun. His generosity, love is priceless. I am looking forward to have fun with Salman," he added.
Tiger Shroff said, “I am very excited as well as nervous. I feel privileged to be dancing alongside Salman Khan and Hrithik Roshan. I have to step my game up. Both Salman and Hrithik are gods of dancing in their own style.”
Shilpa Shetty will be conducting a special yoga class in Spain next month.
She said, "Today yoga is practised world over. I am glad to have
a class there. Its (IIFA) a great platform. I feel privileged
to do it (yoga). I wonder how IIFA team comes up with a better show
year after year...they have been a trend-setter. I am looking
forward to IIFA."
The IIFA weekend will have a host of events - IIFA Rocks, FICCI - IIFA Global Business Forum, IIFA Stomp with Mulafest Urban Trends Festival and the mega awards night.
The IIFA Rocks event will have musical performances by Pritam, Meet Brothers, Benny Dayal, Kanika Kapoor, Monali Thakur, Neeti Mohan and Papon among others.
While the star-studded awards night will be hosted by Farhan Akhtar and Shahid Kapoor, stars like Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Sonakshi Sinha and Tiger Shroff will be entertaining the audience with their performances. (Seen here: Daisy Shah with Elli Avram)
