The International Indian Film Academy for the time held its two day festival in Hyderabad. The IIFA which was confined to the North for the past 16 years visited the South for the first time with Gatchibowli open air stadium as its stage. Governor E.S.L. Narasimhan and his lady Vimala Narasimhan attended the inaugural ceremony on Sunday as chief guest. The Tamil and Malayali actors and directors were felicitated on Sunday and Telugu and Kannada stars were to be honoured on Monday. Actresses of the four languages were the special attraction with their glamorous designery dresses which compelled the cameras stay focussed on them.
