Farhan, Shahid to return as ‘Raju aur Pappu’ at IIFA stage

Actors Shahid Kapoor and Farhan Akhtar will return as the hosts for 17th edition of the NEXA International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards in Madrid, Spain. They will be in their Raju and Pappu avatar on stage.

IIFA Weekend and Awards are all set to take place in Madrid this year from June 23-26.

Farhan says he can’t wait to share the stage with Shahid, with whom he shares a great rapport and has hosted the 13th as well as 15th IIFA Awards in Singapore and Tampa Bay respectively.

“This is the third year and I do promise you that both of us will be toiling hard to make sure it is an entertaining experience. There is a certain ease that we have and a very great chemistry. Shahid and me had a great time hosting twice before this, so it’s going to be a reunion of Raju and Pappu,” he said.

Together, they are preparing to put up an interesting show as hosts of the gala.

Shahid had previously admitted that he had the most fun hosting the 13th edition of IIFA Awards in 2012 with the “Wazir” star, and added that he has “awesome memories” from that time.
