South Indian International Movie Awards 2022 (SIIMA), one of the biggest award shows, was held in Bengaluru on Saturday and Sunday. Several biggies from the south film industry including Allu Arjun, Yash, Vijay Deverakonda, Kamal Haasan, Pooja Hegde and others graced the event.

While Allu Arjun and his team Pushpa bagged multiple awards at the event, all eyes were on Yash aka Rocky Bhai and Allu Arjun aka Pushpa. The most memorable moment for fans of the duo was when Rocky met Pushpa at the SIIMA 2022 afterparty event.

Fans have been massively sharing the video in which Yash and Allu Arjun are seen holding each other's hands and engaged in a conversation. Meanwhile, several others at the party didn't miss the golden opportunity to capture their matinee idols together in their mobile cameras. 

Allu Arjun also was seen vibing to 'Oo Antava' song from his movie Pushpa. In the midway, he interrupted the DJ to stop playing the music and requested everyone, “Everyone has to say yes, Thaggedhe Le." He said it as this was his famous punch line from the film which means ‘I will not bow down now (Mein Jhukega Nahi).

Another video that has won the hearts of many is Rocky entering with his wife Radhika Pandit. The royal entry of the couple is something one can't miss. The couple was escorted to the event by several people. 

On the other hand, Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh graced the event and added more excitement and fun to the event. On Sunday, he shared a picture with Yash and captioned it "BHAI," to which Yash replied, "Pleasure to meet you brother ๐Ÿค— More power to you."

Ranveer also shared a picture with Allu Arjun in which the duo is seen hugging each other.

Ranveer also shared the stage with actors Dr Shiva Rajkumar and Vijay Deverakonda. The RamLeela actor taught them his iconic hook steps of 'Tattad Tattad' song. The south actors were seen grooving the hook steps that highly enthralled the audience. 

Late actor Dr Puneeth Rajkumar was awarded the Best Actor in the lead role (Posthumously) for Yuvarathnaa. 

Ranveer was also honoured with the 'Most Loved Hindi Actor' award at the event. The '83' actor expressed his gratitude by sharing his picture holding the award.
