IIFA Awards 2013: Why did Vidyut Jamwal cancel his performance?

The Commando actor was slated to perform live stunts on stage but pulled out at the last minute. Here’s why

Action hero Vidyut Jamwal was slated to perform live stunts on the 2013 International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards stage in Macau on July 6, but he pulled out at the last minute due to an urgent family situation.

“Vidyut has had to travel urgently out of the country to attend to a certain family situation. Due to this, he will unfortunately not be seen performing his action and stunt based act at IIFA Awards 2013 in Macau this year,” his spokesperson said in an official statement.

The actor gained popularity with films such as Force and Commando, and his daredevilry will next be seen in Bullett Raja.

At the IIFA extravaganza, which kicks off on July 4 at The Venetian Macao, stars like Madhuri Dixit-Nene and Deepika Padukone will set the stage on fire with their perfect moves and grooves. The awards night will be co-hosted by Shahrukh Khan and Shahid Kapoor.
