Shahid to replace Boman-Ritesh at IIFA
Actor Shahid Kapoor is all set to host his first IIFA Award in Singapore next month, replacing famous duo Boman Irani and Ritesh Deshmukh, who have been entertaining the audience for past four years.
The 31-year-old has previously performed at the International Indian Film Academy awards in Singapore (2004) and Amsterdam (2005).
The 13th edition of IIFA will be hosted in the Lion City of Singapore from June 7-9. While the night will have its share of the awards, glitz and glam that goes with the mega event, the host for the evening will also have celebrity co-hosts.
The gala event will feature various film briefings, the IIFA World Premiere of "Shanghai" featuring Kalki, Emraan Hashmi and Abhay Deol, IIFA Rocks - a fashion and music extravaganza, and the IIFA Awards presentation ceremony. PTI
