  • Caitlin

    Feel like a bad organizer, but I don't get back to Tampa until 6 now, and I'm sick as a dog after my flight from Delhi. So I'm out for tonight. :(

    I will be around for the remainder of IIFA.

    • james s.

      Hope you feel better. If anyone wants to meet up, text me at[masked], and I will coordinate.

      April 23, 2014

    • Jasmine N.

      Feel better! You will be missed tonight.

  • Aggy

    Hello all. Caitlin has appointed me as the Event Host as she won't be able to make it tonight. I know I have big shoes to fill. Let's wish her speedy recovery. We will miss you, Caitlin.
    I just emailed my cell number to all attendees. If you have any Qs, feel free to ask.
    Looking forward to meeting you all and having a 'zabardast' (great) time tonight!!

    will there be any food at the venue to purchase?

    April 23, 2014

    • Aggy

      I believe there's food, as well as merchandise, available. Even if not, there's plenty of eating places at walking distance.

      April 23, 2014

  • james s.

    If anyone would like to carpool from Wesley Chapel/New Tampa area, let me know

      Me too. I am checking with some others about carpooling as well. What time will u set out?

      April 22, 2014

    • james s.

      I am planning on heading down about 5:30-6. Traffic will likely be hectic

      April 23, 2014

  • Ashok S.

    Are you sure it is free? I was at the Gujarat Samaj of Tampa Bay and they were selling tickets for $100.00 for IFA.

    April 9, 2014

    • Caitlin

      The IIFA Expo is also free! Working out a good time to go to that.

      April 10, 2014

    • Aggy

      Of the 3 days the IIFA Expo runs - Thu Apr 24 through Sun Apr 26 - its open only till 6 pm on Apr 25 & 26 but till 8 pm on Apr 24th. Coincidentally, there's IIFA Rocks show from 6:30 pm onwards on Apr 24th at same venue. So if we get there on Apr 24 around 5:30-6 pm, we would not only enjoy the Expo but may even catch a glimpse of the stars. Anyone up for it???

      April 22, 2014

  • TOONGI

    Is there any particular place at the park where the group will be meeting?

    April 22, 2014

  • Anil P.

    If there is a cost to the show, Everyone is welcome to my Balcony to enjoy the Show.

      After party sounds great :)

    • Aggy

      Personally, I would be careful about posting personal info on a public website, Anil. May I suggest you delete it after the event is over.

      April 22, 2014

  • TOONGI

    Is anyone going from the Pinellas County side of the bay and could pick me up? I can meet you somewhere convenient.

    April 19, 2014

    • Ashok S.

    Anyone know if we can bring a cooler? Beer, Wine, Etc?

    April 19, 2014

  • Aggy

    The IIFA page mentions that the event starts at 7 pm.

    April 13, 2014

    • Caitlin

      Yeah they changed it. Pushing back the time here too

      April 18, 2014

    • Aggy

      Hope they start on time - and not on IST...lol

    This sounds like so much fun! Hoping Hrithik Roshan shows up! Too bad the tickets to the awards show were beyond my budget. See you all there!

    April 17, 2014

  • Asif

    Wow!!! its happening, excited to see you all :)

    Hello caitlin...I contacted you earlier regarding posting whereabouts of stars during IIFA weekend. It will help everybody to watch their stars....

    April 10, 2014

    • Caitlin

      Just a head's up then since you're not on the FB group... The airport and IIFA are tweeting when stars are arriving at TIA (beginning April 20), and you can actually go to the green carpet welcome there just by paying to park in the parking garage. (The event is on the garage's roof.)

      1 · April 11, 2014

    • Ujala R.

      Great! thanks for the info...
