Tampa Bay (US) Actor Anil Kapoor kicked off International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) expo at the Tampa Convention Centre.

Bringing business, products and services from India and U.S. under one roof, the three-day expo provides a unique platform to promoting trade and commerce between two countries and cultures.

“I am thankful to launch the expo. It is a wonderful concept. It is a fantastic way to interact and exchange business. I am glad to see so many people here. I never expected these many people will come. People of Tampa Bay are so warm and loving,” Mr. Kapoor said.

The expo has stalls of apparel, bridal wear, jewellery, handicrafts, artefacts and Indian cuisine.

The Slumdog Millionaire star’s fans gathered in large numbers to catch a glimpse of the actor. They did not even miss the opportunity to click picture and shake hands with their favourite actor. They even sang Anil’s famous number One two Ka four from film Ram Lakhan.
