The International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards kicked off on Thursday in Macau, China, with Bollywood in full attendance.

Leading the pack were the Bachchans, who posed besides the wax figure of Amitabh, unveiled at the event.

While inaugurating the IIF ceremony Amitabh Bachchan said, 'Why can't we be proud of what we are doing rather than comparing ourself with others. The west is west and the east is east. Let both of them exist in their own world. What is wrong with the Indians?'
