Speaking about hosting the awards at the IIFA press conference earlier this week, Abhishek Bachchan said, "There is a huge responsibility when you are hosting, we have to ensure that we celebrate our cinema in the most correct, dignified and respectful way possible. I am not somebody who likes to take digs at other people. I find that incorrect, so you won't see too much of that. Do stuff that is entertaining, keep it light and keep the audience engaged," news agency PTI quoted Abhishek Bachchan as saying.
The award ceremony was opened by Anil Kapoor.
Ahead of the big award night, Abhishek Bachchan posted pictures from the IIFA press conference with Vicky Kaushal and he wrote, "Getting into the groove of IIFA 2023 with the talented Vicky Kaushal. Looking forward to hosting and entertaining all of you."
The awards in the technical category were announced at the IIFA Rocks on Friday. Gangubai Kathiawadi led the pack with three awards. The list of winners of the main category will be announced tonight.
