INTERMITTENT showers greeted Bollywood stars as they took to the green carpet at the IIFA Rocks event but that did not dampen their spirits.

Stars including Salman Khan, Alia Bhatt, Kriti Sanon, Shahid Kapoor made sure that the show went on even as some fans chose to leave the MetLife stadium due to the downpour. But there were thousands of fans who braved the bone- chilling cold just to catch a glimpse of their favourite stars at the event.

Salman took to Twitter and shared, “It’s raining in #NewYork, loving the weather. If it does rain tomorrow it will be awesome dancing in the rain at #IIFA.” While, an excited Shahid wrote, “#IIFA rocks. Rain can’t stop the party.” Filmmaker Karan Johar, Saif Ali Khan, Varun Dhawan, Anupam Kher, Diljit Dosanjh, Kamal Khan and Riteish Deshmukh were also in attendance at the event which saw a special performance by music maestro A R Rahman.
