The seventh edition of the South Indian International Movie Awards (SIIMA) is all set to be telecast with a multitude of stars attending the award function.

SIIMA awards recognise and honor fine actors, artists, technicians of the film industry from the South. The best movies and artists from Malayalam, Kannada, Telugu, and Tamil languages will take part in this prestigious award distribution ceremony.

This year, SIIMA will take place in Dubai with many celebrities from the South Indian film industry appearing in the event. The nominations from Telugu, Kannada, Tamil, and Malayalam languages were out earlier, and the awards are distributed in the gala event organized by SIIMA.


Like every year,  the buzz around SIIMA has increased and there is a negative vibe surrounding these awards. There are rumors on social media that the awards are scripted. There are talks emerging that the jury awards have already been decided regardless of people's choice.

Well, there is no valid proof of these rumors against SIIMA. Meanwhile, check out the list of nominations for SIIMA 2018.
