Salman Khan to attend IIFA despite protests




Bollywood actor Salman Khan has refused to take a letter from crowds protesting outside his house against his proposed visit to Sri Lanka for IIFA awards ceremony and said that he will attend the award function.

Members of the Tamil community staged a protest here on Sunday against Bollywood actor Salman Khan’s proposed visit to Sri Lanka for International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards ceremony.

Khan is due to attend the 11th IIFA awards ceremony in Colombo from June 3-5.

“We tried to give him a letter which he did not accept and said that he will attend the award function, so we have burnt photographs here. In case if they attend this function we won’t let his films to release here,” said Sharvana, a protestor.

Earlier, the Tamil community held a similar protest outside actor Amitabh Bachchan’s residence on May 11.

The IIFA 2010 is being viewed in Sri Lanka as a ‘coming out’ platform for a nation that is emerging from 30 years of civil war.

The Tamil film fraternity has also rejected the idea of an Indian film event in Sri Lanka, with popular Tamil actors Rajnikanth, Kamal Hassan, Vijay, Ajith and Surya reportedly declining to take part in the IIFA.

Lots of Sri Lankans are fans of Bollywood... and I am sure they care, just like millions of other fans across the globe. Some are fans of Hollywood, some of Bollywood and some are fans of both.

Bollywood is the largest film industry in the world in terms of movies made and people reached. Hollywood is approaching that with increased global coverage, but if you go to Africa many people stick with Bollywood... not to mention the billion plus in the sub-continent.

And I know a lot of my relatives who are fans of Hindi Films.

So I definitely think people care, or at least I do... lol

Personally, Bollywood can be a bit tacky, but then again most Hollywood movies aren't that much better nowadays... watch any rom-com or run-of-the-mill comedy movie and try not to cringe.

There are some politicians in my state who wants to be in the picture over a dead subject hence they try to disturb the calm just to be in the news. Most of the tamilians have bigger problems than worry over these politicians
