Hollywood icons John Travolta and Kevin Spacey took part in all the fun this past weekend as Tampa welcomed the first ever IIFA Awards held in the United States to town. Festivities kicked off with Travolta and Spacey joining Bollywood megastars Deepika Padukone, Hrithik Roshone, and Anil Kapoor, among others, on stage for many song and dance routines that reflected Travolta’s musical film past along with Bollywood’s affinity for musicals both past, present, and future.

A lucky 20,000 people caught this year’s IIFA Awards show, which is slated for release on worldwide television in June, and IIFA said it expects 800 million people to ultimately watch the awards show as Bollywood continues to increase its global footprint.

Travolta was presented with an award for his contribution to international film and gushed afterwards about the proceedings. “The first musical number, it was, wow, that was amazing,” Travolta opined on Saturday. “I find Indian films very original in energy and life. Every time I’ve had an opportunity to sing or dance in a movie, it’s been glorious … I think we’re simpatico. I would love for the Bollywood influence to actually infiltrate and give Hollywood more confidence in musicals and dance. Musicals in Hollywood are sporadic.”

Travolta had an impromptu chance to relive his ‘Saturday Night Fever’ days with star Hrithik Roshone as the latter presented him with his career achievement award.

Kevin Spacey also wowed the crowd with his dance with the big winner of the night Deepika Padukone to the tune of the ‘Lungi Dance’ and even donned the song’s signature wrap around over his tux for the show-stealing performance at the star-studded event. The Oscar-winning star of classics such as ‘American Beauty’ and ‘The Usual Suspects’ seems to have enjoyed himself as he said ‘It is great to be here and see the performances at IIFA.’

Bollywood stole the selfie trend from Hollywood as Anupam Kher tweeted a selfie with Spacey, Priyanka Chopra, Arshad Warsi, Aftab Shivdasani, Ritesh Deshmukh and Rajiv Kapoor where everyone seems to be having a great time from IIFA!
