Toronto, June 25: The over-bloated, world -focused, cash- digester IIFA awards is back again in Toronto this weekend. The highlight here, would be the presence of the Bollywood Badshah after his disappearance from the show for seven long years. And with the absence of the Bachchans from IIFA this time, Shahrukh is even more sought after. However, a troubled knee is what seems to be nagging him; who is apparently nursing a knee injury with surgery remaining the only option left for the Bollywood veteran.
King Khan, meanwhile, is busy rehearsing to the choreography of Shamak Davar, but is said to be under a lot of discomfort and is constantly on painkillers to ease out his pain. But considering the vigour which this man exuberates he is sure to perform to the hilt of his energy and put up his best. Nominated in the Best Actor category for his scintillating performance in MY NAME IS KHAN, Shahrukh has much to look forward to. For the moment, fans can only hope that Shahrukh doesn’t aggravate his problem further.
The other stars who would perform at Toronto are Preity Zinta, Bipasha Basu, Priyanka Chopra, Saif Ali Khan, and you name it. The Deols, viz., Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby are also likely to put up a show. But whether the presence and performances of such Bollywood biggies would fill in the void created by the absence of the Big B is a question that remains to be answered.
