As we begin the countdown to the Idea IIFA Awards in Dubai, the International Indian Film Academy today announced Jagmohan Mundhra's Provoked as the film that will be premiered at the IIFA World Premiere in Dubai on 14 June 2006.



Set in London, Provoked is the traumatic story of Kiranjit Ahluwalia (Aishwarya Rai), a battered Punjabi housewife and mother of two children. Unable to bear the brutality of her alcoholic husband (Naveen Andrews), she takes revenge by setting him on fire. Charged with first-degree murder, Kiranjit is sentenced to life imprisonment. While in prison she befriends her cellmate, a wealthy white woman, Veronica Scott (Miranda Richardson).



Provoked will receive a red carpet welcome as it premieres at the Grand Cineplex Theatre during the IIFA Weekend presented by Tiara Residence in Dubai. The IIFA World Premiere is being showcased in association with the Dubai International Film Festival.



Over the past few years, the IIFA World Premiere platform has showcased the Oscar-nominated Lagaan, Aankhen, Yuva and Parineeta….all of which have been critically and commercially acclaimed world over.

It is a celebration of the cultural and social harmony between the two countries."



The Idea IIFA Awards presentation ceremony being held at the magnificent Dubai Airport Expo, one of the crowning glory of the IIFA Weekend presented by Tiara Residence will be held in the presence of a global audience including dignitaries from the world of cinema like Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Yash Chopra, A.R.

As always, this year too the Idea IIFA Awards will be celebrating the best from Indian Cinema and will pay tribute to the stalwarts from the Indian silver screen.



While Idea has committed itself to sponsorship of the Idea IIFA Awards for the first time, this year's IIFA celebrations will be broadcast across the world by Star Plus on 25 June at 8 pm IST.
