With rain playing havoc in New York, some celebrities stayed away from walking the Green Carpet at the IIFA Rocks event.

Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Karan Johar, Anupam Kher, Diljit Dosanjh, Shahid Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt were amongst the names that attended the event.

IIFA Rocks paid tribute to AR Rahman, who celebrates his 25th year in the Indian film industry.
