Riteish Deshmukh and Boman Irani have been entertaining viewers with their wit and comic timing as the hosts of the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards for the past four years. But this year, Shahid Kapoor might be taking the mantle away from them.

According to a source, Kapoor is being roped in to anchor the 13th edition of IIFA, to be held in Singapore from June 7-9.

Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan are also likely to host certain segments of the ceremony. Both actors are in the run for the best actor in a leading role award for their performances in Don 2: The King Is Back and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, respectively.

The three-day event will see a host of Indian celebrities. It will feature fashion shows and a musical extravaganza, with all celebrations culminating in a glittering awards presentation ceremony.

IIFA officials declined to confirm or deny the rumours when tabloid! got in touch with them, saying they would reveal names later.
