Canada finds itself at the centre of the Bollywood universe this whole month June, with Toronto hosting the 12th annual International Indian Film Academy Awards – with an estimated global audience of 500 million. Toronto is the first North American host of the awards — described as India’s version of the Oscars. The event, now in its 12th year, has never been held in India. Organizers choose a different country each year, saying international participation boosts the stature of the awards.
