No more Bachchans for Toronto IIFA awards-Last man standing Down
You won't see any of the Bachchan's in Toronto ( Aishwarya Abhishek Jaya or Amitabh) as Amitabh (Big B) Bachchan parted ways with IIFA.
Ontario,Canada Premier Dalton Mcguinty has been cashing major PR with the Bachchans but that came to a screeching halt today with Bachchans separating from Toronto IIFA.That means that the fate of Toronto will be probably like Srilanka or Dubai when no super stars of the time showed up.
The rumour has it that apparently some Bollywood actors of yesteryear are going to visit Toronto in the near future and will be pegged as stars to save face by IIFA organizers.
Its interesting that some local Desi radio stations in Toronto have been hired to get general public to the venue of the press conference, another desperate attempt by the organizers to show that people actually care about this suffering award show.
IIFa now certainly has been doomed since Sri Lanka was a flop as well, put together haphazardly after Korea pulled out from the 2010 original announcement of holding it there.
Amitabh Bachchan had been the brand ambassdor of IIFA for over a decade but this year we will not see him and the family.The only people who actually carried some weight and attended the past awards.Most of the IIFA awards have been missed by the rest of the film industry in India in the recent past.
One of his fan recenetly asked Mr. Amitabh Bachchan on the micro blogging site tweeting “Dear Mr. Bachchan, the Indian community in Toronto is looking forward to welcome you here. See you at IIFA!”. To which Big B tweeted back “Not coming to Toronto IIFA .. IIFA says my services are not required."
Last year too the Bachchans gave IIFA a miss. Further many more have reacted to this statement of Mr. Bachchan saying “WAT? u not at IIFA?? wats iifa without u???where can i contact those IDIOTS(iifa organisers) please”.
