TAMPA, FL (WFLA) - Award-winning actor John Travolta will make an appearance on the Green Carpet in Tampa Bay during the IIFA awards this week.

Travolta will make an appearance at India’s biggest celebration of cinema, the 15th Videocon D2H IIFA Weekend and Tata Motors IIFA Awards to be held Saturday at Raymond James Stadium. He will be honored at the awards ceremony for being the 'Most Popular All time International star in India.'

The IIFA notes that Travolta's presence is symbolic to the coming together of the two distinctive film industries.

"Travolta will grace the extravaganza extending his support and appreciation of the Indian Film Industry and its spectacular influence," they say.

The IIFA Awards ceremony is going to be held on the final day of the four-day festival, which runs April 23-26. In addition to the awards ceremony, the night features music and dance performances.

This is the first time the IIFA is being held in the U.S.
