Hosted by Kartik Aaryan and Ayushmann Khurrana, IIFA Rocks was a night full of dance, music, glitz and glamour as Pritam Chakraborty, Nushrat Bharucha and Mouni Roy lit up the stage with their power-packed performances.
The special green carpet of the event was graced by popular celebrities like Rekha, Karan Johar, Varun Dhawan, Shraddha Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Riteish Deshmukh, Dia Mirza, Konkona Sen Sharma and Rahul Bose among others.
Adding another interesting facet, fashion designer Vikram Phadnis showcased the finest of his collection at a fashion show, where Anil Kapoor and Dia Mirza were the showstoppers.
Arjun Kapoor, who is known for his super-fun antics, also joined them for a brief while on stage and in the audience. Arjun infused a lot of humour with his lungi dance and even roped in the co-hosts for a mock-performance session of Hum Kaale Hai Toh Kya Hua.
Arjun and his co-dancers were cheered on by the IIFA audience as they danced like nobody’s watching, but Arjun, everybody watched and enjoyed your performance. Dia Mirza also joined the dancing crew with a few signature steps of Tip Tip Barsa Paani.
