Tampa Bay: Multi-talented Hollywood actor John Travolta, a dancer and singer par excellence, is so fond of Bollywood's song-dance that he matched steps with Priyanka Chopra on "Tune maari entry" without any prior preparation and wowed the audience at the 15th edition of the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Weekend.

The four-day extravaganza ended here with the awards honouring the best work in Indian cinema and actress-singer Priyanka started the award ceremony with her performance and Travolta added zing to the act by joining her on the stage.

After the performance, Priyanka praised Travolta's impromptu act saying: "Nobody could have done that without any rehearsal."

At the gala, Travolta was honoured with the outstanding contribution to international cinema award.

On receiving the honour, he said: "It's a pleasure to be here ... I am honoured and humbled. I want to thank the Indian community for the honour.”
