IFFLA Chairman Arnold Peter said that Red Chillies VFX, a division of Red Chillies Entertainment, founded by Khan and his wife Gauri, "was making waves both in Bollywood and Hollywood with its fine-cut innovations. It is really the spirit, the
inspiration and the muscle behind today‘s film."

IFFLA, the premier Indian film festival in North America, will celebrate its 10th anniversary from 10 to 15 April next year.
