The 18th edition of IIFA 2017 started off with a bang in New York’s Times Square. While our Bollywood stars began their day with an official press conference, the show soon took us to a ramp in the middle of Times Square. The biggest names from Bollywood were there- Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Sushant Singh Rajput, Kriti Sanon, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, to name a few.

Salman even sang an early birthday song for his former girlfriend (who will turn a year older on July 16) at the press conference.


IIFA Stomp, Bollywood’s glamorous fashion show right in the middle of Times Square, had Taapsee Pannu, Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Dia Mirza and Alia Bhatt strutting down as fans cheered. Check out their IIFA Diary updates.

Varun Dhawan made New York city groove to his moves on the IIFA Stomp stage.

While Dia Mirza made a bold Indo-Western statement, Disha Patani chose a short shimmery dress.

Then it was Shahid Kapoor’s turn to take over.

But only till Shilpa Shetty came on lookign nothing short of a goddess. NYC sure was impressed.

Salman even gave fans a sneak peek of his IIFA rehearsal via Twitter.
