Hollywood actors Kevin Spacey and John Travolta busted out some serious dance moves with Bollywood stars including Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor.
Celebrities and dignitaries from India and the United States descended on Florida this week for the "Bollywood Oscars," an awards event making its first-ever U.S. stop with the aim of creating deeper ties between the two countries, Reuters reported.
The International Indian Film Academy's awards show is set for Saturday and has been compared to the Super Bowl in terms of its security needs, traffic management and planning. However, its expected worldwide viewership of 800 million far surpasses the championship American football game's 111.5 million viewers on average in 2014.

The film academy's choice of Tampa, home to Florida's third-largest South Asian community, to host its first U.S.-based awards show in the event's 15-year history came as a pleasant surprise to some fans.
Other Indian celebrities taking part in the event included Anil Kapoor, best known to U.S. audiences for his 2008 role in "Slumdog Millionaire," and Shah Rukh Khan, an actor who has more than 7.4 million followers on Twitter.
The film academy's kickoff event on Wednesday night drew as many as 8,000 people to a downtown park, 40 percent of whom were not of Indian heritage, the mayor said. There they got a taste of the rich culture as deejays spun Indian music and local Bollywood-style dance troupes performed.
