If this piece of news is any indication, it seems all is still not exactly hunky-dory between Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan. According to an industry source, Khan will not be attending the forthcoming India International Film Academy (IIFA) Awards, of which Bachchan is the brand ambassador.
“Since the last few years, the bosses at Wizcraft, which owns the IIFA Awards property, have been inviting Shah Rukh and requesting him to attend the function. But each time he has skipped it, for some reason or the other,” says our source, the spokesperson at Wizcraft maintains, “We have sent the invitations to the entire industry, including Shah Rukh Khan.”
But our source adds, “Considering that Amitabh Bachchan is the brand ambassador of the IIFA Awards, Hrithik Roshan is in the reckoning for the Best Actor Award, and Salman Khan is being roped in to perform, there’s little doubt that Shah Rukh would attend just for the sake of being present at the show.”
