Bollywood's 'Ooh la la' girl Vidya Balan is on a multi-city promotional tour of the US to spread buzz about the forthcoming International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) celebrations, which will make its American debut this year.

IIFA Weekend and Awards, an annual Bollywood gala, is scheduled to be held in Tampa Bay, Florida, April 23-26.

Vidya has joined its promoters on the second IIFA US tour to visit New York, Houston, Tampa and Orlando. The journey began Tuesday, and will end Friday.

"Having travelled to a number of exotic locales the world over, IIFA has made its mark on the map, educating the world about Indian cinema. Going forward, I am very pleased to be part of IIFA's landmark journey, as they venture into the US, in Tampa Bay," Vidya said in a statement.

During the main event, the National Award winning actress will also be part of a Master Class with Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey.

"I am excited to be part of the IIFA Master Class this year and look forward to engaging with my fans in the US," said the versatile talent, who was recently seen on the big screen with Shaadi Ke Side Effects.
