The International Indian Film Academy Awards (IIFA) is one of the most awaited events with the who’s who of  Bollywood in attendance. This year was no different. Celebrities like Karan Johar, Ranbir Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor and Varun Dhawan were present at the awards show, the highlight of which was a stunning performance by none other than the legendary Rekha. The 63-year-old icon danced to popular songs like Pyaar Kiya Toh Darna Kya and Salam-E-Ishq Meri Jaan. By some media accounts, this was her first public performance in 20 years.

Here are a few pictures and videos from the event:
