Yesterday we gave you an list of winners from the International Indian Film Association big award extravaganza. We now bring you a bit about the performances that heated up the stage, as well as the special awards given out during the glittering evening.
Besides outstanding performances by Govinda, Katrina, Priyanka and Harman, as well as the casts of Acid Factory, Mission Istanbul and De Taali the night also saw some sensational moves from Kareena and Akshay. Kareena did numbers from both Tashan and Jab We Met dressed in a myriad of costumes designed by Manish Malhotra. However the talk of the night was Akshay Kumar’s performance. As usual the Khiladi had to make a grand entrance and this time he did it sliding down a wire from the corner of the theater on a skateboard. Yes you read that right. He landed on stage and then danced to a medley of songs including one from his new film Singh is Kinng.
