Karan Johar, Farah Khan Present IIFA Rocks 2023; Amit Trivedi, Badshah, Sunidhi Chauhan performing live

The International Indian Film Academy and Awards (IIFA) returns to Yas Island, Abu Dhabi for the second consecutive year on February 9, 10 and 11, 2023. Filmmaker Karan Johar and director-choreographer Farah Khan will present the latest edition of IIFA Rocks. During this musical extravaganza, some of the most popular artists perform live on stage, such as Amit Trivedi, Badshah, Nucleya and Sunidhi Chauhan.

An excited Karan, who has won multiple awards at IIFA, says: “I have had a special relationship with IIFA for over two decades. It will be a pleasure to rock the stage with Farah. Toodles!”

Farah, who had hosted IIFA Rocks with actor Aparshakti Khurana at the 22nd edition of the film awards in June this year, shares her excitement, noting: “I will be back in February, exactly nine months later, to hold the baby again . And with Karan as my co-parent, sorry co-host, it’s going to be an absolute riot, I promise. Head honk naa.”

Amit Trivedi, who set the stage on fire during IIFA Rocks 2019, promises to entertain the audience once again with his live act. “IIFA is not only a platform that celebrates the best Bollywood talent, but it also showcases our Indian culture to the world. That is what draws everyone to this podium time and time again,” he says.

Badshah is also looking forward to an exciting live act. “In 2017, Alia Bhatt thrilled New York when she performed my song Ladki Beautiful Kar Gayi Chull from her movie Kapoor & Sons (2016) at the IIFA Awards. This year I will be there personally to treat you to some of my popular hits. So, fasten your seatbelts and prepare for a rocking landing,” the rapper exults.

Sunidhi is no stranger to IIFA. She remains the youngest nominee for Best Female Playback for the iconic song Mehboob Mere (Fiza; 2000). She has also been nominated 17 times and won the award twice for Dhoom Machale (Dhoom; 2004) and Beedi (Omkara; 2016). “This year IIFA gives me a platform to entertain my extended family of fans from around the world. It will be a great spectacle. We are going to rock Abu Dhabi!” she says.

Indian electronic music producer and Grammy nominee Nucleya, known for his smash hit albums like Bass Rani and Raja Baja, and collaborations with international icons like Diplo and Krewella, says: “IIFA Rocks 2023 will be a night to remember. Let the countdown to the best Indian music and dance begin!”

While Salman Khan, Ranveer Singh, Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon, among other Bollywood A-listers, will be the star performers at the IIFA Weekend and Awards 2023, Abhishek Bachchan, Farhan Akhtar and Maniesh Paul will host the awards show.

The annual IIFA gala is held in partnership with the Department of Culture and Tourism Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) and Miral, Abu Dhabi’s leading curator of immersive destinations and experiences. Ticket sales went live today at 12:00 PM.
