Bollywood stars are all set for the IIFA awards weekend that will take place in Tampa Bay, Florida.
While many of their Bollywood colleagues chose to leave early for IIFA weekend, some celebs waited to cast their votes and for the media hoopla to die down before taking a flight to Florida.
Actress Sonam Kapoor was seen leaving for Tampa Bay from Mumbai airport wearing this comfortable yellow floral print dress on April 24.

Actress Dia Mirza wore a black and white outfit topped by a leather jacket.
Actor Ranveer Singh looked comfortable in a white T-shirt and loose purple pants.
Actor Sonu Sood also left for the IIFA festivities.
Rishi Kapoor, who has two nominations in the negative role category, was seen leaving for Tampa Bay with someone who we had to look twice at before realising it was his wife Neetu Singh, looking half her age (and his!) in jeans, tee and jacket.
Actor Sharman Joshi and wife Prerna Chopra Joshi were seen leaving for IIFA together.
