IIFA awards at Singapore from 7 to 9 June

MUMBAI: The 13th IIFA Weekend and Awards will be held in Singapore from 7 to 9 June. Having left an indelible footprint in China, Europe, the Middle East, Thailand, Sri Lanka and Canada over the last 12 years, the Videocon IIFA Weekend 2012 is gearing up for three days of action-packed celebrations in the Lion City.


Presented by Videocon Industries and Wizcraft International Entertainment, the event is supported by the Singapore Tourism Board.


The programme has been charted as under: June 7 - IIFA World Premiere: Lido Cinemas, Shaw Theatre; June 8 - IIFA Rocks; and June 9 - IIFA Awards, Singapore Indoor Stadium.


Over the years, IIFA has emerged as the most prestigious platform recognising excellence in the Indian film industry. Year on year, the biggest names of Indian cinema congregate at the IIFA Weekend and Awards to celebrate the best contribution made to the world of films in the previous year. IIFA is a global platform that gives the Indian film fraternity an opportunity to reach audiences in international territories. It also establishes a symbiotic relationship between India and the host country in areas such as tourism, culture and trade.


Observed Anil Kapoor, "With the promise of bringing the best and the biggest of events to its viewers in a manner that‘s unique and entertaining, the IIFA Weekend and Awards have today become an iconic platform that the world respects. It has been my pleasure to be associated with IIFA for over a decade and once again, on behalf of IIFA and the Indian film industry, we commit to give our audience in Singapore the opportunity to witness one of the finest celebrations of culture and cinema ever held."


After its successful staging in 2004, IIFA is to return for the second time to the island nation making it only the third nation to host the IIFA celebrations twice. IIFA 2004 witnessed a contingent of over 450 stars, celebrities, cricketers, industrialists and government leaders over the festive weekend.


Said Wizcraft International Entertainment Director Wiz Sabbas Joseph, "Our focus is to showcase the best of Indian cinema to the world. With the unparalleled success of IIFA Singapore in 2004 we are back here to relive the magic. We have only just opened the Wizcraft Event Management operations in Singapore and are delighted to showcase our most prestigious creation, IIFA once again in Singapore. We hope that the IIFAs help bring India and Singapore closer together."


Singapore has been a popular location for filming and the screening of Indian films.

Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh......Predictable story

Sequel is a misnomer for films using a similar or the same title as an older film including, surprisingly, not always successful ones. The use of an old title and, if possible, the protagonist from the earlier film seem to suffice. In Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh, the common factor as in Kahaani (...
