For the first time, Malaysia hosts the prestigious event, scheduled for Sep 12 and Sep 13 (2014) at Stadium Negara. Over 100 Indian movie stars are expected with performances by several including Tamannaah Bhatia, Anirudh, Devi Sri Prasad, Shriya Saran, Shiv Rajkumar, Lakshmi Menon, Nivin Pauly, Regina and Rakul Preet Singh.
SIIMA chairman Vishnu Induri said the selection of Malaysia as the venue of the event was the right choice. "Indian films are very popular here. So, this is the right place for us to hold SIIMA, and I am very happy with the support from the Malaysian government, especially as it is Visit Malaysia 2014," he said.
