Simran Makes Hilary’s Acquaintance at IIFA
Reinforcing the bond between Indian Cinema and Hollywood, IIFA played host to two major Hollywood stars and previous Oscar winners, Hilary Swank and Cuba Gooding Jr. Commenting on this year’s IIFA celebrations, Hilary Swank said, “India and Toronto have a special place in my heart. Hollywood and Indian cinema have to bring people together. I love all kinds of cinema and from all countries. I think Indian films are a lot of fun and are passionate. I believe in IIFA’s motto of ‘One People. One World.” Other familiar faces that were seen at the IIFA Awards were those of South-Indian sensation Simran and the very prolific R. Madhavan. Voted the most prolific actress with the diverse portfolio from the Indian Sub-continent by Forbes magazine in 1999, Simran looked absolutely stunning as she chatted backstage at the Floriana IIFA Awards with Hollywood biggie, Hilary Swank.
