‘Dabangg’ dominates Bollywood awards with 6 prizes

“For the first time in its 12-year history, IIFA makes its North American debut, and its biggest stars are you,” Kapoor said in a mix of English, Hindi and Punjabi while pointing to the audience. “Thank you Ontario. Thank you so much for making us feel the warmth in Canada.”

Organizers say more than 200 filmmakers and actors came from overseas in the bid to gain inroads into the North American market and build production partnerships.

The awards gala is considered India’s biggest media event and one of world’s most-watched televised spectacles, with hundreds of millions of viewers tuning in.
