The IIFA Awards have been instrumental in putting Indian cinema on a global platform by celebrating and recognising the talent within our film industry.

In its 20th anniversary edition, IIFA Awards is being hosted for the first time ever in India in the home of Hindi cinema, aka Bollywood, Mumbai, later this month. The star-studded annual ceremony is all set to witness a grand celebration of Indian cinema’s finest talent, glitz, glamour, global dignitaries, world media, fans and enthusiasts from across the globe right here in Mumbai – the heart of the very vibrant entertainment capital of the country marking the 20th celebration of the IIFA journey.

Ace choreographer Shiamak Davar has always been an integral part of this wonderful event since its inception; directing, designing and choreographing for the performing celebrities. Thereby ensuring that Bollywood continues to be well represented in all its glory internationally.

His dance company, The Shiamak Davar Institute for the Performing Arts is one of the finest worldwide. With the combination of Shiamak’s vision and the talent of its members, one is always assured of blockbuster performances.

On the occasion of IIFA being hosted at ‘home’ for the first time ever, Shiamak says, “I am happy that after a long and beautiful journey in destinations around the world, the fans at home in Mumbai will get a chance to witness and experience the spectacular 20th homecoming edition of IIFA Awards 2019. Wizcraft has been greatly responsible for organising and showcasing Indian cinema and our talented stars in destinations around the world. I congratulate each and every person that has ever been associated over the last 20 years with this grandiose and sumptuous production and I look forward to many more.”

Once again Shiamak will bring his magic on stage in Mumbai with new dance movements which will make the show even more splendid and special.
