Though some big names will be missing out of the event, Sri Lankan government is going out of its way to make the event a big success.

Actors like Vivek Oberoi, Boman Irani, Lara Dutta and Ritesh Deshmukh have already arrived in Sri Lanka Tuesday. Today (Wednesday) some more Indian actors along with hundred of Indian tourists will attend in the post-war country.
