TAMPA — Bollywood superstar Anil Kapoor and a horde of screaming fans were at the Tampa Convention Center on Thursday to mark the start of the International Indian Film Academy Expo.
The three-day exhibition is one in a series of events leading up to the Bollywood Oscars awards ceremony Saturday. About 20 vendors set up tables selling everything from traditional Indian clothes and jewelry to photography and wedding packages.
“We're trying to soak in some culture,” said Rita Car, who was at the expo with her husband.
The free expo, which is being held in the convention center's Central Hall, continues today and Saturday, beginning at 11 a.m. each day.
