Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar and actress Dia Mirza will host the first edition of the South Africa India Film and Television Awards (SAIFTA), which will also have dancing diva Madhuri Dixit and the multi-faceted Priyanka Chopra scorch the stage with their performances.
The event, expected to draw an enthused crowd of 7,000 fans and celebrities, will be held Sep 6 in Durban.
Together, Karan and Dia will bring to the stage their brand of charisma, wit, humour and glamour adding to the glitz quotient of the extravaganza, read a statement issued Friday.
Joining Madhuri and Priyanka as the star performers for the event will be Ranveer Singh and Siddharth Malhotra, apart from TV stars Manish Paul, Mona Singh, Apurva Agnihotri and Shilpa Agnihotri.
Over 150 prominent film and TV personalities will grace SAIFTA 2013, where they will rub shoulders, interact with and familiarise themselves with 30 top film and TV personalities of South Africa.
Celebrity Locker, a Mumbai-based events company has joined hands with the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Economic Development and Tourism of Durban for the event, which will recognise and award talent across TV shows, films, actors and directors in the entertainment industries of both countries.
