They celebrate the best of Bollywood films from the past year, but this year will focus on films from the past two years, as the event was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic.

Top stars of the Hindi film industry, including Shahid Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan, are attending the two-day event in the capital, which kicked off with Friday's IIFA Rocks.

Hosted by director Farah Khan Kunder and actor Aparshakti Khurana, the event featured performances by popular singers including Yo Yo Honey Singh, Guru Randhawa, Neha Kakkar and Dhvani Bhanushali.

Singer Devi Sri Prasad, composer Tanishk Bagchi and Asees Kaur, Ash King and Zahrah S Khan also took take to the stage.
