The star of ABCD 2 (2015), Shraddha Kapoor, arrived in a fierce black dress and took a moment to snap a quick selfie with her lucky fans. Singer Mika Singh also joined in the selfie fever!

But all the spotlight went to Sonakshi Sinha, who literally ‘rocked’ as she stepped onto the green carpet in a striking outfit, topped with an embellished necklace.

Hosted by Ayushmann Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra, this year’s IIFA Rocks separates itself from the fashion display and is entirely dedicated to music.
