Alia Bhatt, who has collaborated with the IIFA for the first time this year, can’t hold on to the excitement of her debut performance on the award night.
The 24-year-old actress, who has been nominated in the ‘Best Actress’ category for ‘Udta Punjab’ and ‘Dear Zindagi,’ when asked what excites her the most- the trophy or the performance, promptly replied, “Of course performance!”
Speaking about the iconic MetLife Stadium in New York, where the event is set this year, she said, “As Katrina said, it’s a huge stadium and it has a capacity of 40,000 people. That’s unbelievable. I have already started preparing. I am even going to be dancing in my sleep. I can’t wait to go there and perform for the people. That’s the best feeling ever.”
“I am very excited to be a part of IIFA 2017 as this is going to be my debut at the IIFA Awards after five years in the industry. I am super excited that IIFA is being held in the beautiful city of New York. IIFA is all about togetherness and the celebration of the Indian cinema globally and I eagerly look forward to this celebration,” Alia added, while attending the IIFA 2017 presscon here.
Katrina, who was also there at the press meet yesterday, when asked for a sneak peak of her performance, without spilling the beans said, “I am hoping it will be something memorable.”
The two beauties were accompanied by the ‘Dabangg’ Khan for the conference.
When Salman was asked about his performance, he joked, “No idea. Only after I am done with the performance, I might have an idea of what I have done on stage.”
IIFA 2017 will also witness stunning performances from stars like Shahid Kapoor, Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon and others and will be hosted by Karan Johar.
The event will be happening on July 14-15 and will be aired on July 16, on Katrina’s birthday.
