IIFA to pay a special tribute to Amitabh Bachchan on his 80th birthday

Mumbai: The International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) this year will celebrate Amitabh Bachchan's 80th birthday over the next 10 days. The IIFA celebration will consist of polls, quizzes, and trivia highlighting his work and achievements.

Fans can catch all of this and more on IIFA’s social media handle (@iifa).

IIFA said that it has never left any opportunity for movie fans to get closer to their favourite stars. Over the past 22 years, IIFA has travelled the world to showcase and highlight the very best in Indian cinema. During this time, through the journey of IIFA, the brand has taken Indian cinema to the world and has been working to bring the world together through cinema and entertainment.

IIFA added that Bachchan is known as the Shahenshah of Indian Cinema. Bachchan has also donned the hats of a film producer, television host, and occasional playback singer.

Amitabh Bachchan, who has won multiple awards at IIFA, was also awarded the first ever Bollywood wax figure at Madame Tussauds, which was facilitated, ironically, at the first IIFA in London in 2000. There are so many wonderful memories and moments that IIFA has witnessed with the superstar himself in many editions of the IIFA Weekend. He is currently one of the actors with the most IIFA best actor awards.
