Abhishek Bachchan Says He Will Attend International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards If Free
Abhishek Bachchan, the actor and son of megastar Amitabh Bachchan has revealed that he is not sure if he will attend this year’s International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards.
Abhishek’s father Amitabh Bachchan recently hogged headlines after he declared that he will not be attending this year’s event as the organisers has told him that they don’t require his services anymore. Big B has been the Brand Ambassador of the IIFA until 2010.
"I don`t know when it is but obviously if we are free and not working, yes we`ll go for it. We`ll see if we could accommodate it, but if we are busy making films then obviously we won`t be able to go there," Abhishek quoted.
"Because if we don`t make the films we won`t get nominated the next year so we have to concentrate on our work. If our schedule permits let`s see," he added.
Meanwhile, an official statement released by the organizers read that they will whole heartedly welcome the Bachchan family at the event.
The statement said, “The Bachchan family has been an intrinsic part of IIFA every year, and in this regard we have already shared with them a proposal about their participation this year too."
The prestigious awards is scheduled to take place in Toronto from June 23 ,2011 -25 ,2011.
