MUMBAI: Shah Rukh Khan is once again set to host an award function. This time, the Bollywood superstar will host the fourteenth edition of the IIFA Awards along with actor Shahid Kapoor at Macau.
This is not the first time that Shahid Kapoor and Shah Rukh Khan are co-hosting an awards ceremony. They have hosted an awards function twice before. Shahid Kapoor says, “I have hosted with SRK sir before and it’s always a privilege sharing a platform with him.”
Expect a lot of humour when Shah Rukh Khan and Shahid Kapoor host together on the IIFA stage. The IIFA stage will also include performances by Deepika Padukone, Madhuri Dixit-Nene, Abhishek Bachchan, Sridevi and Prabhu Deva among others.
Shah Rukh Khan may not perform because he recently underwent a shoulder surgery. There is no word yet on whether Shahid Kapoor will perform as well.
Shah Rukh Khan seems to have built up quite a rapport with Shahid Kapoor. Fans may be left wanting more of Shah Rukh Khan’s partnership with Saif Ali Khan, which has been missing over the past few years. Remember their ‘Kantabai’ sequences? How about an award ceremony getting all three of them together?
The IIFA Awards will take place on 6 July, 2013 at Macau. Will Shahid Kapoor match up to Shah Rukh Khan’s impeccable comic timing. They’ve done it twice before, so we hope that he can match steps with King Khan once again.
