Shahid excited about hosting IIFA (Lead, superseding earlier story)May 14th, 2012 - 11:15 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, May 14, (IANS) Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor says that he agreed to host the 13th edition of International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards in Singapore June 7-9 after a lot of people persuaded him.
“It took a lot of people to convince me that I could do this. I love performing in front of a live audience. IIFA and I go a long way back, but we were never able to come together. So I am very excited that now I am being able to do something,” Shahid, who hosted this year’s Filmfare with Ranbir Kapoor and Shah Rukh Khan, told reporters here Monday.
Bipasha Basu, who will attend the event, said, “Right from the time when I was a debutant and till now, it’s been almost 10 years and I think I had a wonderful experience with IIFA. I will be performing at the event as well.”
“For the first time, we have a choreographer like Prabhu Deva. I told him some time back that I am not a trained dancer, but I am energetic. So, hopefully, he will manage to make me dance well,” she added.
Bipasha was speaking at an IIFA event held here to announce the performance line-up at the forthcoming event.
Besides Bipasha, Shahid, Mika Singh, Sonakshi Sinha and Prabhu Deva himself will entertain the audience with their performances.
