Revealing a secret, Farah Khan has said that Salman Khan fancy dancing, not hosting, as the Bollywood stars gathered for an event in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates.
In a video, Salman joked at IIFA (Indian Film Academy and Awards) for getting Farah Khan, Karan Johar, Farhan Akhtar and Badshah to host this year’s show. But Farah responded that they would be hosting other events.
When Salman called those events “bigger” than his event and continued entertaining the audience present, Farah – Bollywood film director, producer, actress, dancer and choreographer –asserted, “Because you said – you prefer to dance. Because that was easier for you. You have to do hosting for three hours whereas you can get done with dancing in six minutes.”
The 2023 edition of the annual IIFA event will be held at Yas Island in Abu Dhabi from February 9 to 11, next year.
Later in the event, Salman recalled his experience of being a part of the IIFA for the past 20 years. “I am glad to be going back to Yas Island, Abu Dhabi. In the last edition, I hosted the awards with Riteish Deshmukh and Maniesh Paul and made everyone present not just laugh, but cry too as I opened my heart to them. This time, I promise to make them stand up and dance with me as we celebrate Indian cinema globally.”
‘No one can match his swag’
On the occasion, Salman wore an olive green shirt under a grey jacket and matching pants with black shoes. The actor smiled and gave different poses for the paparazzi.
A paparazzo account shared a video of Salman on Instagram. Reacting to it, a fan said, “No one can match his swag.”
“God willing, indeed, befitting his beauty, handsomeness, and majesty,” said another person.
