Bollywood actors Abhishek Bachchan and Shahid Kapoor both left handprints in a special cement mould as a part of the 14th International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards opening ceremony, which kick started in Macau on Thursday.
Abhishek, who will also perform at the awards function Saturday after a gap of few years, was looking forward to the function.
"It has been an eventful morning…welcome to Macau! I was here in 2009, when I performed. It will be a very exciting weekend. IIFA is one such event where we get to showcase the (Indian) film industry. There will be a lot of activity here," he said at a press conference organised here.
Abhishek Bachchan’s performance also marks an end to the so-called tiff between the Bachchans and IIFA, which cropped up in 2010 when IIFA was organised in Sri Lanka.
IIFA will also promote empowerment of women through their campaign "Power of 49". Celebrities like Abhishek, Shahid Kapoor, Parineeti Chopra, Gauhar Khan, Arjun Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez and Ayushmann Khurrana unveiled the badge of the campaign all of them wore the badge.
