Bollywood’s Mr India star Anil Kapoor and Desi Girl Priyanka Chopra will be on their way to tour for three days in Los Angeles, Tampa Bay and New York to promote the upcoming IIFA awards.

The tour starts on January 13, along with the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) management to generate publicity about the 15th edition of the awards gala event. This year, the IIFA awards will take place in Tampa Bay, Florida.

Together, they plan to spread the word about the upcoming edition of the IIFA awards, which is scheduled for the first time in the USA from April 24-26. Both the Bollywood stars Anil and Priyanka are well-known and have a huge fan-following abroad.

Their international association began respectively when Anil bagged a role and mastered it in the Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire and TV show 24 series while Priyanka Chopra launched her career as a singer with her first single, ‘In my City’ in the US and has gone on to give voice to the Hollywood animation movie, Planes.

“We are very excited to bring IIFA to Tampa Bay. With the support of representatives of Visit Tampa, we have been able to conceptualize and actualize an incredible event. There will be music, dance and a whole lot of spice. We’re looking forward to giving our fans and new audiences the experience of a lifetime,” Priyanka said in a statement.

Anil, who recently gave Indian television a desi version of the American series 24, said: “As a friend of IIFA, I am delighted as IIFA makes its debut in the USA through Tampa Bay.”

“We commit to give our audience an opportunity to witness one of the finest celebrations of culture and cinema,” he added. Tampa Bay has been busy taking care of the details and getting ready to host the event.

“This tour is just the beginning of a very exciting journey. Our entire region is enthusiastically preparing to welcome tens of thousands of visitors to our destination, and we look forward to serving as great hosts to the biggest and best IIFA awards in history,” stated Santiago Corrada, president and CEO Visit Tampa Bay.
