Bollywood does Dubai

World Brief

Bollywood’s glitterati will descend on Dubai June 16 for the Intl. Indian Film Academy awards, organizers said Wednesday.

The extravaganza has been staged abroad since 2000 to raise Bollywood’s international profile — twice in South Africa and once each in Singapore, Malaysia, Britain and the Netherlands.

“The IIFA awards have marked the beginning of a new era for recognizing and applauding the achievements of Indian cinema,” Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan told reporters in Mumbai at the official announcement.
