The 2011 IIFA Awards, officially the 12th International Indian Film Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the International Indian Film Academy honoured the best films of 2010 and took place between June 23–25, 2011. The official ceremony took place on June 25, 2011, at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. During the ceremony, IIFA Awards were awarded in 24 competitive categories. The ceremony was televised in India and internationally on Star Plus. Actors Boman Irani and Ritesh Deshmukh co-hosted the ceremony for the fourth time.

In related events, the IIFA Music and Fashion Extravaganza took place on June 24, 2011 at the Ricoh Coliseum. The event was hosted by Karan Johar (Best Director winner) and Anushka Sharma (Best Performance in a Leading Role Female winner). During the event, all technical awards and one musical award were presented to the winners.

Dabangg won ten awards, three of which were popular awards: (Best Picture, Best Performance in a Negative Role and Female Debutant Star.) Both Band Baaja Baaraat and Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai won ten awards. Other multiple winners included Guzaarish with six awards and I Hate Luv Storys, Robot and Udaan, with three awards each. In addition, Housefull and Love Sex aur Dhokha, each received one award.


This was the first time the IIFA Awards were held in Canada and North America. Toronto's large South Asian population likely influenced the choice as a host city (Ontario is the province with the most Indo-Canadians at 573,250[1] with 484,655 in the Greater Toronto Area). The award ceremonies are held in various places around the world and has not necessarily been held in locale with a large South Asian population.

The awards ceremony was telecasted on 24 July 2011 on Star Plus.[2]

Shahrukh Khan and stage crasher[edit]

While co-hosting the Music Awards, a man jumped on stage and clamped himself to Shahrukh Khan's injured leg. He was later removed from the stage, when Shahrukh said "You're hurting my leg. Please move!". But, Shahrukh did agree to meet after the show upon the request of the man.
