Special traffic arrangements will be put in place for the IIFA related events scheduled to take place in Colombo between Thursday and Saturday while security will also be strengthened around at some locations in Colombo.

Director General for the Media Center for National Security (MCNS) Lakshman Hulugalla told Daily Mirror online that security around the BMICH at Baudhaloka Mawatha, the Sugathadasa Stadium in Colombo and the Cinnamon Grand Hotel in Kollupitiya would be strengthened due to the Bollywood stars being present at these three locations from June 3 to the 5.

However he said that other than in these three locations, there would be no road closures elsewhere and the public would not have to face any inconvenience.

“Of course there will be some security concerns around the main locations where the events are going to take place since hundreds of people are expected for the IIFA events over the next few days. However there will be no road closures leading to public places in and around Colombo and the public will not be inconvenienced,” Hulugalla said.

Over a 100 Bollywood stars are expected to arrive in the country from today and will participate in events such a fashion show which will take place at the BMICH on Thursday, a cricket match which will be played at the SSC grounds on Friday and the main IIFA awards which will take place at the Sugathadasa Stadium on Saturday evening.

    Development?!? Does this so called development also involve digging up the road for a drainage system in front of the Public Library only to be closed up with earth because they can't finish the work on time?

    Simply cant understand why Sri Lankans are so stupid with regard to this bollywood stuff. Are these bollywood stuff made of gold to be so exited about it.

    Yes take maximum precautions, as I quite remember shah rukh khan was sadden at the incident when he was performing in Colombo, and mentioned that he will never visit SL, could be the reason for him not attending!

    Well now since we have totally wiped out LTTE, we can host events like these. Could we even imagine hosting events like this before May 2009? Thanks to everyone who contributed in finishing the terrorism in the country, we can now host great events like these, we should be proud.

    im taking casual leave ;-)

    Tuesday, 01 June 2010 09:02 AM

    Exactly, we are gradually forgetting this fact and being critical with every good work of the government!

    Tuesday, 01 June 2010 09:07 AM

    One suggestion to prevent people being inconvenienced is the roads should not be closed during peak hours that is during school and office hours.
