This year's IIFA awards will see sizzling performances by actors Shahid Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor in Macau.
The 10th edition of the festival will be attended by a host of Bollywood celebrities like Bachchan family, Hrithik Roshan, Kangana Ranaut, Saif Ali Khan and Neil Nitin Mukesh among others.
IIFA will also see Sonam Kapoor performing for the fist time in an award function.
Priyanka and Shahid will perform on the title track of their forthcoming film 'Kameenay' at the awards function on June 13 while Kareena's performance will have Turkish-Arabian feel.
The actress will be seen as an Arabian princess dressed in gold harem pants made of silk, satin and lace, which has been designed by Manish Malhotra. Her act has been choreographed by Shaimak Davar.
The actress said she has been taking belly dancing classes to prepare for her performance.
"I feel ecstatic about my show because this is the first awards function which I will perform this year. I have become choosy about why I perform. But IIFA gives me an international standing," Kareena said.
Sabbas Joseph, director of Wizcraft, the event organisers, said, "Lara Dutta will join Ritesh Deshmukh and Boman Irani to host the extravaganza."
The IIFA weekend will be held from June 11 to 13 at Macau, which is the special administrative region of China.
