She tweeted: 'Sorry guys ! This year I will Not be able 2 attend IIFA Toronto as I am working on a movie. Sad cuz I'm really going to miss all the fun:-('

Priyanka Chopra is all set to sizzle the stage. The Deol trio -- Sunny, Bobby and papa Dharmendra -- are also expected to shake a leg on stage. It is also reported that the cast of Double Dhamaal, who are premiering their movie at IIFA, will take on the stage to perform on a special medley of the film's songs.
