Shahid Kapoor protected Misha from camera flash at the Mumbai airport by covering her face but not in New York
Actor Shahid Kapoor has arrived in New York for the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) festival with his toddler daughter Misha and wife Mira Rajput on Wednesday. IIFA's official Instagram account announced the arrival of the Kapoors in the Big Apple with some pictures. Shahid Kapoor was all smiles and Misha looked paparazzi-ready (what's a jet-lag again?). Mira Rajput, wearing an Agrima jacket and carrying a Bottega Veneta tote, walked out of the airport with Shahid and Misha. We love Misha's cute expressions. Shahid Kapoor is nominated in the Best Actor category for his portrayal of drug-addicted rockstar Tommy Singh in Abhishek Chaubey's Udta Punjab (2016).
Shahid Kapoor and other Bollywood celebrities left for IIFA awards on Tuesday. At the Mumbai airport, Shahid guarded Misha from the camera flash by keeping her face covered. But in New York, he took Misha out of her blanket and introduced her to the foreign media.
Actor Saif Ali Khan and his children Sara and Ibrahim, actors Disha Patani, Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Aditi Rao Hydari also left for IIFA on the same day. Sara Ali Khan, who is debuting opposite Sushant Singh Rajput in Kedarnath, arrived at the airport separately with Ibrahim.
IIFA festival is scheduled to take place in New York from July 13 to July 16. IIFA Rocks will be held on July 14 and the main IIFA green carpet event and award ceremony will be conducted in NYC's MetLife Stadium on July 15. The 18th edition of IIFA awards will conclude the following day with a closing party.
