  1. I am looking for ticket, do you still have any ticket available?

      No unfortunately! I wish we could help, but the event sold out almost immediately. You can purchase coverage of the event on Pay Per View if you want, or if you’re on Twitter, you can follow @OMNITelevision. They’ll be live tweeting updates and pictures during the awards!

  2. Nobody cares about this event. Bad actors, poor plots and just plain cheesy. Bollywood is just a poor knockoff of Hollywood. IIFA Awards is the worst thing that happened to Toronto. I’ll personally be staying away from Toronto this whole weekend until this garbage is over.

  3. Is it true that there will be 2 screens set up outside the rogers centre that will be broadcasting the awards?? I heard this on the news.

      Hi Harry,

      Sorry for the delay getting back to you. It took me a while to confirm the information. Yes, there were screens outside the Rogers Centre, but they were actually showing OMNI Television’s green carpet coverage, not the actual awards. The awards coverage was only available via PPV.

  4. is there any faster way to buy the award show rather than calling … i have been on hold forever!!!

      Hi Bob,

      Sorry you had to wait! Hopefully you were able to get through to someone and order the event.
