Even though we have so many award ceremonies, the film industry cannot get enough prizes.

So now we have the South Africa Indian Film And Television Awards (SAIFTA), which was unveiled by Waheeda Rehman and John Abraham on July 15 in Mumbai.

The event will reward outstanding performers from India and South Africa, and will also act as a cultural exchange between the entertainment industries of the two countries.

Saif Ali Khan, who didn't attend the event, will host the event, which will take place on September 6.
