The excitement of the fans to watch their favourite celebs in International Indian Film Academy awards is increasing every day. Bollywood stars have started flying to New York to attend IIFA 2017.

Fans favourite Arjun Bijlani and Karan Wahi are already in New York to host the green carpet at IIFA 2017 and according to the sources, they have started shooting for the same.

As per reported by Bollywood Life, Arjun Bijlani shared his excitement to host IIFA and said, “I am hosting the IIFA weekend stories, IIFA rewind and the green carpet. I have also hosted last year in Madrid, Spain. So this is my second time. I am going to have a blast this time in New York. I have not been to New York before. I am super excited to be go to Times Square. When we were kids, we had heard so much about the city, that it is fast and pacy, it is like Mumbai but in America.I always wanted to go there and experience that. So it is like a dream come true.”

He further added, “I am an impromptu anchor. Anchoring is not what you prepare, it is all about your presence of mind and how easy flowing you are when you are actually doing it. I think, I am very easy flowing, my anchoring is not caricaturist, I do not imitate anyone. I have a conversation which is funny and impromptu and make the other person comfortable,”

Apart from Arjun Bijlani, Dil Mil Gayye fame Karan Wahi, who had just returned from Spain also shared his excitement with fans and said, “Going to New York is always great fun. I just came back from New York a week back, though I was only there for two days. This time around because of IIFA, I’ll be there for a longer duration, I am excited bout IIFA because it’s a global event and being a part of it is always nice. This is going to be my second IIFA, the first one being Macau, a few years back,”

The actor further added, “When you are hosting the red carpet or conducting interactions with the actors up close and personal, it has to be impromptu. One has to know what to ask and what not to. Since I know a lot of actors personally, it becomes easier for me to have a great interactive session with them.” He adds, “I follow a lot of actors’ hosting styles. I love Shah Rukh Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Karan Johar and Shahid Kapoor.” In fact, Karan can’t wait to meet the actors. “I am happy I am going to be meeting my favourite actors, who I have known and admired. Having a blast with them is what I intend to do,”

Karan also revealed what he would be wearing for IIFA and said, “My look has been decided by the channel and I guess it’s going to be more on the lines of semi-casual, since I’ll be hosting the weekend stories, fun moments and the red carpet would surely be a formal affair.”
