The first highlight event of the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards wrapped in style despite rain playing spoilsport on Friday night (July 14) in New York City’s MetLife stadium. It was star-studded as expected and marking their presence were superstars Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Anupam Kher, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Shahid Kapur, Kriti Sanon and Sushant Singh Rajput, among others. “Dream Team again. At #iifa2017 …” When other stars started singing happy birthday and wishing Katrina Kaif, Salman Khan said, “The best part about wishing somebody is this”, and the actor gave an impromptu kiss to Katrina.
You know that feeling when a bunch of employees at your favourite restaurant get together and sing the birthday song for you, right?
On stage, Salman was seen having some difficulty in keeping up with the IIFA schedule, when he said: “I am very bad with dates”. “The only date I remember is Katrina’s”, he confessed tongue-in-cheek referencing to the fact the Jagga Jasoos actress’s birthday was on July 16.
When Salman was asked what he is planning to do for Katrina’s birthday, he Katrina said: “It’s not a national event….” Ab US mein bhi ho jaayega (It’s a holiday in India, and it might happen in US too). Salman kissed Katrina on both the cheeks and we saw Katrina smiling.
