We are thoroughly pleased with the nominees a result of the film industry’s secret ballot; and we hope the audience will make a worthy choice in deciding the winners of this year’s IIFA accolades.”

Actress Chitrangada Singh and television anchor and actor Ayushmann Khurana are co-hosting the awards weekend.

IBNLive reported that 36-year-old actress Singh will be co-hosting IIFA Rocks, a musical and fashion event on the night before the awards ceremony, along with the Vicky Donor star.

"This is the first time I am going to be anchoring a show. I have just met Ayushmann so we are still working on the chemistry. He has hosted many shows so he is going to take care of the slip-ups," said Singh.

VJ-turned actor Khurana, known by his first name, said: "This is going to be my first time at IIFA. I have hosted many shows before but IIFA is the biggest of all. I'm going to keep it spontaneous. I might also sing."

IIFA Rocks this year will include performances by Mika Singh and composer duo Vishal-Shekhar. Singers Usha Uthup, Hariharan and composer Leslie Lewis are going to perform to celebrate Indian Cinema completing 100 years.

Sonu Sood starrer cop drama Maximum will also be premiered at the IIFA Rocks. The film, directed by Kabeer Kaushik, also stars Neha Dhupia and Naseeruddin Shah. It is based on the police encounters in Mumbai.

"Last year I got an award for Dabangg at IIFA and this year my film is being screened there. I have always wanted a big platform for Maximum and I am grateful to IIFA for taking the film to a global audience," said Sood.

The event will also have fashion show with designers Varun Bahl, Suneet Verma and Masaba putting their collections on display.
