WATCH: Shahid Kapoor And Farhan Akhtar Ride Donkeys To #IIFA2016


MADRID, Spain -- This has got to be one of the most "dramatic entries" at an awards show.

Last night, IIFA 2016 hosts Farhan Akhtar and Shahid Kapoor, aka Raju and Pappu, ditched the luxury cars for Spanish donkeys to hit the green carpet.

Indian Bollywood actors Shahid Kapoor (2ndL) and Farman Akhtar (C) arrive on donkeys to pose on the green carpet a few moments before the 17th edition of IIFA Awards (International Indian Film Academy Awards) in Madrid on 25 June, 2016.

The duo rode in on the donkeys, flanked by Spanish musicians and dancers.

The 17th edition of the IIFA awards gala, which takes the power of Bollywood to international shores every year, is celebrating 60 years of India’s diplomatic relations with Spain here with close to 150 film celebrities and over 20,000 fans in attendance.
