TORONTO — Kevin Spacey and John Travolta showed off their Bollywood dance moves Saturday night at the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards in Tampa, Florida.
Spacey donned a Lungi to join Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Farhan Akhtar in a dance to “Lungi Dance” from the movie Chennai Express.
Spacey was there to present Padukone with the award for Entertainer of the Year.
Travolta was pulled on stage by Indian star Priyanka Chopra, who got him to fuse his Pulp Fiction dance moves with Bollywood steps.
Later, actor Hrithik Roshan presented Travolta with an award for Outstanding Achievement in International Cinema, declaring the two-time Golden Globe winner “the coolest of them all.”
“I’m honoured. I’m humbled,” said Travolta, who busted out his Saturday Night Fever dance moves.

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, a film about the life of Indian track and field Olympian Milkha Singh, was the big winner of the night. The 84-year-old Singh was in the audience Saturday.
The movie won the best story award, best director and best picture. It also won nine technical awards during a separate ceremony in Tampa on Friday.
“Bollywood” is the term for the film industry based in Mumbai (Bombay). Although it is used mostly to refer to the lengthy song-and-dance movies in the Hindi language, it’s become somewhat of a catchall term for Indian films.
IIFA organizers say the Indian industry sells 3.6 billion movie tickets a year.
