Salman Khan seems to be rather rigid about his current favourite choreographers, Bosco-Caeser, for all his concerts.

After carting them along for the Rock Stars concerts in Britain, US and Canada, the actor has now insisted on the duo for the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards show in Dubai on Friday.

Evidently, Salman doesn't mind being isolated from his colleagues. Everyone else's performance is being choreographed by Shiamak Davar. Bosco-Caeser will stand out as the guys choreographing Salman exclusive at the IIFA.

Apparently since Salman had no time to rehearse (he returned from the Rock Stars concerts on Tuesday) he needed choreographers who know his body language in and out.

Rehearsals for the main event are on full swing in Dubai. The show's brand ambassador Amitabh Bachchan arrived in Dubai with daughter Shweta on Thursday. Wife Jaya and son Abhishek reach on Friday, just before the main event.

Abhishek rushes back to Chennai right after the release of the music release of Karan Johar's Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna.

Aishwarya Rai breezed in and out of Dubai on June 14 for the premiere of her film Provoked. She fielded questions from the press before quickly flying out.

Rani Mukerji arrived in Dubai on Thursday. She is expected to perform an entire item based on Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Black and Amitabh will probably join her on stage.

Preity Zinta, who is rushing through the rehearsals rigorously, will be performing an item based on the Arabian Nights.

But the one most nervous and excited is debutant Sikander Kher who's going to perform with newcomer Neha Uberoi to one of the songs from their debut film Woodstock Villa.

Such is the secrecy surrounding the duo's debut performance on Friday that they weren't allowed to be present at producer Sanjay Gupta's press conference on Wednesday in Dubai.

"All I am doing is rehearsing and chilling out in my room. No partying for me," Sikandar said.

"I don't know how our performance will go. But we have worked really hard. This is not just my first performance but also my first step into showbiz. And to dance on the same stage that has seasoned troupers like Saif (Ali Khan), Salman, Rani and Preity is scary," said Sikandar who is at the IIFA with his mother Kirron Kher.
