Imtiaz, known for films like Jab We Met, Rockstar, Highway and Tamasha -- through which he has beautifully captured the beauty and essence of the destinations they are shot in -- will be honoured with the IIFTC Impact Award for outstanding contribution to tourism.
The IIFTC Tourism Impact Award for cinematic excellence will be given to Vikas Bahl, who shot in Paris and Amsterdam for Queen, and to Rohit Shetty's banner and Red Chillies Entertainment for Dilwale, which captured the beauty of Iceland in the Gerua song.
