MUMBAI: The grand awards ceremony for the ‘Times of India Film Awards’ TOIFA just got bigger and better, with names like Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif, Ranbir Kapoor, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan joining in the fray.
The three day Bollywood extravaganza to be held in Vancouver, Canada will commence on 4 April 2013, with a musical performance. Day 2, 5 April will see film screenings of popular Bollywood films and the Technical awards, while the event will climax with a grand awards night on 6 April 2013.
And we bring to you the exclusive line-up of A-list celebrity acts, that will rock the stage in Vancouver.
Headlining the TOIFA is none other than Shah Rukh Khan himself. The superstar is known to have a wide fan following in Canada, and was the natural choice to perform on stage for the prestigious opening of the TOIFA night.
Other star performers include Bollywood ‘desi girl’ Priyanka Chopra, who will be performing on stage to her super hit songs, and might even throw in a solo singing performance, post the success of her international music debut ‘In My City’.
Katrina Kaif too will be seen essaying some Bollywood jhatkas and matkas at the awards night. Alongside her, Bollywood’s first family Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are also set to enthrall fans with their power-packed performances. This will be the first time they will be seen together on stage, post the birth of their daughter Aaradhya Bachchan.
And the biggest surprise of the night will be the very handsome Ranbir Kapoor, who has been roped in to anchor the TOIFA with co-star Anushka Sharma. This will be his second outing as a host for an awards show, after his successful stint as host with Imran Khan for the 56th Idea Filmfare Awards two years ago.
