Anil said: "It's a very special year for me. For the last few years, I was missing Salman at IIFA and this year he is coming. Whenever Salman is there, it's special for me because we all go to his room, we party and we have a great time. I am looking forward to spend time with him again."
The main awards show at IIFA will be hosted by Farhan Akhtar and Shahid Kapoor.
