Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone Among Winners at Bollywood’s IIFAs

Kevin Spacey joins Shahid Kapoor, Padukone in 'Lungi Dance'

The Indian Intl. Film Awards ended Saturday in Tampa, Fla., with Bollywood biopic “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag” bagging most of the trophies. But superstars like Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone also took home hardware for “Krrish3” and “Chennai Express,” respectively.

With Kevin Spacey and John Travolta showing their Bollywood dance moves, the highlight of the three-day  extravaganza included perfs by Indian stars like Roshan and  Padukone. Spacey joined Shahid Kapoor and Padukone in the “Lungi Dance,” which was from her film  “Chennai Express.”

“Bhaag Milkha Bhaag,” based on Indian Olympian runner Milkha Singh, took best picture, director, story and lead and supporting actor prizes.

Farhan Akhtar and  Kapoor emceed the ceremony, which concluded three days of entertainment-, fashion- and sports-related events that included seminars for which thousands buy tickets. Wizcraft, which organizes the annual traveling IIFAs, said about 800 million people worldwide are expected to watch the show when it airs in June.

But for this weekend,  Bollywood latent like Shahid Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra (winner lead actor and director, respectively for “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag”) joined Priyanka Chopra, Anil Kapoor and Aasif Mandvi at the ceremony.
