The who’s who of Bollywood jetted to Vancouver, Canada over the weekend to attend the first-ever Times of India Film Awards.
All those celebs in one spot meant that the event was an uber-successful one, of course. Inaugural events are taken very seriously in India and the culture carried overseas – so you can imagine how awesome the evening must have been!
Forget the excitement as the guests arrived on the red carpet – that was inevitable. What really made the evening a hit was the performances put up by the very celebs that the event was set up to honour.
Quite typically, the show began more than half an hour late (seems our Indian version of ‘standard’ time managed to makes its way overseas too). But once begun, the energy at the venue was palpable from start to finish.

We may be used to all the color, festivity and dazzle that forms a part of any Indian entertainment awards show, but it left the Canadian guests spellbound yet cheering till they were hoarse! Well, to be expected. Who wouldn’t be enthralled when the best of the best of B-town brought only their… well… best! Even we, prepared as we were, were blown away!
