IIFA Rocks is a night where fashion meets films as technical awards are handed over to exception Bollywood films that released in 2018.

Andhadhun leads the nominations tally at this year's IIFAs.

"I have read your review of my film. It's usually the first to come out and we got a lot of love for my film. It's exciting to know that our thriller was so well-accepted," said director Sriram Raghavan on the green carpet.
