Are you ready to witness the IIFA Awards stage being set on fire? Because, the Bollywood stars are ready to do so. The impressive line-up of A-list performances at the 19th edition of the International Indian Film Academy Awards will include performances by Varun Dhawan, Arjun Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor and Iulia Vantur but that's not it, because expect surprises in the form of performances by Rekha and Bobby Deol. Yup, you read that correct. The main event of the IIFA Awards is scheduled for June 24 with Thailand's Siam Niramit as the venue. It will be co-hosted by filmmaker Karan Johar and Bollywood's favourite Riteish Deshmukh. But ahead of that, here's some trivia about the IIFA performances, which you should look forward to.

The Return Of Rekha

After 20 long years, fans will witness a live performance by Rekha on stage, details of which have strictly been kept under wraps. "I have a second name-mystery. If I tell you now, then what's the point?" this was Rekha's response when she was asked about her upcoming IIFA performance, reported PTI. Varun, who is also one of the performers, added: "For me, it is going to be such a big highlight to see her perform live. I know a little bit of her act and to see that live is going to be a huge thing." Meanwhile, Rekha touched down in Bangkok, the venue for the IIFA Awards, on Friday.

Bobby Deol Races His Way On Stage

You are excited, we are excited and Bobby Deol is also "excited" about his IIFA performance. "I've always had a great time at IIFA and once again, after seven years I am performing, for which I am really, very excited," he told ANI recently. "I do not feel nervous. I have nothing to lose, I lost out on a few years of not working and performing, so now I just want to do it," he added. Bobby Deol is expected to perform to songs from his popular films like Soldier and Gupt.

Varun Dhawan's 'Electro' Magic

Varun Dhawan's performance will actually be a power-packed mix of several dance forms and acts. Earlier this month, this is what a source told mid-day: "He will perform freestyle hip hop and krumping on them. The second part of the act will see him groove to a mash-up of Bollywood numbers, including Sau Tarah Ke, Aa Toh Sahii and Tan Tana Tan. But the highlight will be the song High Rated Gabru, by Guru Randhawa, which he has already started work on." During the three-day extravaganza, Varun is also expected to do a unique act, as mid-day quoted him as saying: "I will do a live act with the audience at a market place. It will be something that I have never done before."

Kriti Sanon And Arjun Kapoor's Matargashti

Kriti Sanon and Arjun Kapoor will perform at the IIFA Awards together, reported news agency IANS. "I am doing a medley of our songs. My songs and then Arjun's songs. It's a nice mixture of the two and I feel like it's great when a performance has a story to it... Ours does. I get to do the 'nakhras', dancing, expressions and everything. I am performing on Ik Vaari Aa, Main Tera Boyfriend andTukur Tukur," she said.
