Chak De, Guru, Jab We Met lead IIFA nominations
After bagging several awards,
Chak De India
Jab We Met
are also leading in the nominations for the prestigious IIFA awards to be held in Bangkok in June this year.
The nominations were announced by IIFA Brand Ambassador and Bollywood megastar Amithabh Bachchan at a function held here today.
"We started off very modestly but it (IIFA) has become a global celebration of Indian cinema bridging across cultures, tourism and people," the actor said announcing the nominations.
The 9th International Indian Films Award function is being held in Bangkok from June 6 to 8 this year.
Speaking at the function Thailand's Ambassador to India Chirasak Thanesnant said, "I admire the effort taken by the IIFA. Indian films are very popular in Thailand. We hope the award function will increase the people to people contact between the two countries."
Today's function which was held in a city mall, however, was marred by mismanagement as hundreds of people breached security and vied with each other to have a glimpse of the matinee idol.
