Bollywood is coming to Toronto starting June 23

Bollywood is coming to Toronto.  Toronto is hosting the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA), beginning Thursday, June 23 with film, music, and fashion and ending with the Indian Oscars on Saturday.   Many fans have been hanging out at the Pearson International Airport this week hoping to meet the many Bollywood actors coming to attend the three day celebration.  Over 200 filmmakers and celebrities are flying over from India and abroad, including three generations of the Kapoor family, the Deol family, the famous Shah Rukh Khan, “Slumdog Millionaire” actor Anil Kapoor, and Priyanka Chopra.  There are many Bollywood fans in the GTA and a huge South Asian population, so having  IIFA in Toronto is going to be an amazing experience.  It’s apparently been sold out for months. Would have loved to cover it in person!
