The 18th edition of the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards kicked off with a star-studded press conference in New York on Thursday morning and was followed by a power-packed event at Times Square - IIFA Stomp - in the evening. The interactive session was attended by a bevy of stars comprising Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Kriti Sanon, Sushant Singh Rajput, Varun Dhawan and Anupam Kher. But all eyes were on Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, who headlined the event. The stars talked about their experience of being associated with IIFA and also shared a few light moments on stage, courtesy the dabangg Khan.

On stage, Salman appeared to have little difficulty in keeping up with the IIFA itinerary, when he said: "I am very bad with dates. The only date I remember is Katrina's birthday," reported news agency IANS. Katrina will celebrate her 33rd birthday on July 16, a day after the main IIFA awards.
