A day before the main awards gala, IIFA Rocks will regale the audience with a celebration of 25 years of Oscar winning talent A.R. Rahman. It will also feature a medley of musicians including Rahman, Diljit Dosanjh, Benny Dayal, Javed Ali, Neeti Mohan, Jonita Gandhi and Haricharan Seshadri. Riteish Deshmukh and Manish Paul will host IIFA Rocks. Organised by Wizcraft International Entertainment, the excitement for the Bollywood event is already palpable in New York. This is the second time that the IIFA extravaganza is taking place in the US. It was earlier held in Tampa Bay in 2014.
