The IIFA this year is going to have a ‘Punjabi’ element, as Vir Das along with Boman Irani will play ‘Santa & Banta’. Besides the fact that the duo will be a delight to watch, the Awards are certainly going to be a laugh-riot.
Vir and Boman will host ‘Grey Goose IIFA Rocks’, a music and fashion event, on day two of the Bollywood extravaganza, which starts on the 4th of July. They will also host a media briefing on the first day of the event.
Vir is really looking forward to adding his humor to the prestigious awards ceremony. “I think that IIFA is a great and sophisticated institution. That all needs to change. I’m looking forward to bringing some madness, misbehavior and eventual apologies to this glorious institution. Sorry in advance, but IIFA is about to get Punjabified,” said Vir.
The main awards extravaganza will be held July 6 at the Venetian Macao.
