With just over two weeks until the inaugural South Africa India Film and Television Awards (SAIFTA), takes place at the Durban ICC Arena on 6 September 2013, the organisers - Celebrity Locker, The Department of Economic Development and Tourism KZN, are billing the event as the social occasion of the year.
Along with the gorgeous Dia Mirza, celebrated filmmaker Karan Johar will be hosting SAIFTA 2013. Together, the two will bring to the stage their brand of charisma, wit, humour and glamour. They replace Saif Ali Khan who is unable to attend, due to a clash of dates.
Over 150 prominent film and TV personalities, including actor, film producer and former model, John Abraham, will be walking the SAIFTA red carpet, Oscars-style, along with the who's who of the film and television industry from both countries. These celebrities will get a chance to rub shoulders and interact with 30 top film and TV personalities of South Africa.
The stunning Jaqueline Fernandes, who wowed the audience at the SAIFTA launch in March, along with the unconventional Hard Kaur, will be back by popular demand.
'Dancing queen', Madhuri Dixit, who is cited as one Bollywood's best actresses and dancers, holds the record for the highest number of Best Actress Nominations (13) at Filmfare. In 2008 she was awarded the Padma Shri, India's fourth-highest civilian award by the Government of India.
An audience of 6,000 fans and celebrities is expected to attend the gala SAIFTA extravaganza and plenty more will gather on the Durban ICC Arena Concourse to witness the red-carpet arrivals.
