Dabangg Wins Best Film at International Indian FIlm Awards

JUNE 27, 2011Dabangg and My Name Is Khan were the top winners at the 12th Annual International Indian Film Awards, or IIFAs, in Toronto last Saturday night.

The show, which aired on Saturday night, provided the climax for three days of movie going, dancing, fashion, music and a business forum aimed at strengthening ties between Canada and India -- something event organisers hope to do around the world, too.
