After Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan who’re missing the IIFA Awards in Sri Lanka this year, it seems Shah Rukh Khan won’t be there either. SRK posted on his Twitter account – "I don’t think I will be able to come for IIFA…too much work here, will miss Colombo."
Even Amitabh Bachchan, who’s the face of IIFA, will only be in Sri Lanka for a brief appearance this year. And Lara Dutta, who’s co-hosting the awards, won’t be performing.
So it’s now going to be left to Hrithik Roshan to provide the major star power at the event. Hrithik is going to be captaining the star cricket team that will play against cricketers from Sri Lanka to raise funds for charity, and he’ll be joined by Suniel Shetty, among other B’wood reps.
Think some other stars might suddenly decide to be at IIFA this year? Let’s hope that’s what we get to hear and not news of more stars skipping the event.
