The biggest awards gala of Bollywood, the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) was held last night and it was special for reasons more than one. This year, the event raised awareness about social issues like Woman Empowerment. The event has come to an end and there are just three words which can describe it – entertainment, entertainment & entertainment!
