Mumbai, June 9: Though Amitabh Bachchan has disassociated himself from IIFA, his son Abhishek and daughter-in-law Aishwarya will be performing at the award ceremony, says a media report.
There were rumours that Amitabh Bachchan, who had been the brand ambassador for IIFA since its conception, was miffed as his family was not invited for two years in a row.
Last year, there were some issues between the organisers Wizcraft and him, which led to his decision of not being a part of the award ceremony any longer.
At that time he had tweeted, “We are not coming to IIFA ... IIFA said our services are not required!! It's not me, it's the organizers of IIFA that do not want me in Toronto. Sri Lanka was the same.”
So last year's IIFA awards in Sri Lanka was held without any of the Bachchans being a part of it.
But on Wednesday morning, the younger Bachchans changed their mind. Aishwarya and Abhishek have agreed to give a joint performance at the IIFA ceremony to be held in Toronto.
A source close to the organisers informs, “Yes, Ash and Abhishek will be performing. They will most probably perform on a medley of their latest songs, and they will perform together throughout.”
When asked if the senior Bachchan will also be attending the ceremony now, the source said he still wouldn't be a part of it. “He is shooting.”
