The IIFA Awards this year was special for reasons more than one. After exhibiting the prowess of Bollywood, celebrating the magic of Hindi cinema on foreign shores, it returned to the Thai capital after a decade. This year, the gala event raised awareness about women’s empowerment, gender equality and plastic pollution. And of course, it managed to bring the ageless beauty, veteran actress Rekha back on stage after 20 long years. Was it worth the wait? Totally, we say. The evergreen actress descended on the stage with all the charm and exuberance we'd missed all these years. Her performance was breathtaking to say the least, marked with a poise that only she could pull off. The entire auditorium was in awe of the actress as she danced away effortlessly to Salaam-e-ishq and also took us back to the Mughal-e-Azam days with Pyaar kiya to darna kya. What a sigh to behold it was at the IIFA 2018! Check out the videos of Rekha's performance...
The night was an entertainment extravaganza with impressive acts by Varun Dhawan, Kartik Aaryan, Bobby Deol, Iulia Vantur, Shraddha Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Kriti Sanon and others. Anil Kapoor, Ayushman Khurrana and Nushrat Bharucha made their presence felt. Karan Johar and Riteish Deshmukh played the perfect hosts for the evening.
