With about a month left until the big IIFA weekend in Toronto, the streets are abuzz with questions of who will be there and who will not.

Some of those questions were answered today as IIFA announced that the stunning Priyanka Chopra will indeed be performing at this year's IIFA awards.

Priyanka herself also tweeted, "So its official... I'm going to be performing at IIFA this year! I'm so looking forward to being back in Toronto!"

A second performance was also announced, if that one wasn't enough. Toronto favourites - Dharmendra, Sunny, and Bobby Deol will also be performing at the event.

As the performance list grows, so does the anticipation.

Who will we see? Who won't we? All your questions will be answered soon enough!

Deol Trio, Priyanka Chopra to Dazzle at IIFA Toronto


Mumbai, May 20 (IANS): Bollywood's famous Deols - veteran actor Dharmendra and his sons Sunny and Bobby - are set to enthrall fans in Toronto with their signature dance steps at the 12th International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards to be held next month. Actress Priyanka Chopra will add glamour to the event too.

"Dad is celebrating his 50 years in the industry. It's a great moment for all of us. So we are going to be all together and looking forward to it," actor Bobby Deol told reporters at a press conference here Thursday night.

Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby, who were recently seen together in comedy film "Yamla Pagla Deewana" will perform to peppy songs from the movie, as well as on some of Dharmendra's classic numbers.

"We will of course perform on 'Yamla Pagla Deewana' songs. We would also choose some songs from dad's films on which we can perform," said Bobby.

Even at 75, the evergreen Dharmendra is quite excited to take to the stage to celebrate five decades of his contribution to the film industry.

"I am loving it. Wherever we go we are going to enjoy because we all love you and you all love us. That's the beauty," said Dharmendra.

The three-day IIFA weekend is to be held June 23-25.

According to Bobby, IIFA is different from other awards because it takes Bollywood beyond Indian shores and popularises its song and dance culture in different countries every year.

"IIFA is different because it reaches to different parts of the world. India becomes the talk of the town in those countries. They get to know more about Indian culture and it's a great way of spreading across to the world, what Indians are all about," he said.

Actress Priyanka Chopra said she has not yet decided the numbers she would be performing to at the IIFA event, but she hopes to do something unique.

"This is too early to decide what to perform in IIFA as it still has a month to go. I have performed in almost every award functions this year so would like to do something different in IIFA," said Priyanka.

Though she will not be performing with the Deols, the 28-year-old said she was looking forward to being with them as she shares a special bonding with the family.

"I am very excited. My relationship with the Deol family is very special because the hero of my first film 'The Hero: Love Story of a Spy' was Sunny Deol," she added
