IIFA awards 2017: The 18th edition of the International Indian Film Academy Awards (IIFA) got underway on Sunday morning in the beautiful city of New York. Many Bollywood celebrities graced the green carpet flaunting their suave and shining dresses. Actor Anil Kapoor said that whether he is nominated or not, it’s always fun for him to attend the IIFA, while Preity Zinta said she has been a consistent member of the IIFA family except for the first season. However, one man who stole the show was superstar Salman Khan. The 51-year-old actor who was nominated for Sultan made the headlines with his touching, being human act.
When an old man came on stage to receive his award from Alia Bhatt, Salman Khan gently kept his hand on the man’s back and very sweetly escorted him to the end of the stage. The Bollywood superstar didn’t move till the man was escorted back to his seat. This humane act of Salman will certainly make people respect him more. This isn’t the first time when Salman was in the news for helping someone. His NGO which goes by the name ‘Being Human’ is known for helping the needy.
