Shahid, Alia win Best Actors at IIFA 2017 for 'Udta Punjab'

Posted July 18, 2017

Except for this fact, The Best Picture respect went to Sonam Kapoor starer "Neerja", given the genuine story of Neerja Bhanot, a lady who lost her life while commandeered flight at Karachi.

On Saturday, Bollywood's most prestigious IIFA Awards 2017 was held in which actor Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt won the best actor male and female for their film Udta Punjab. Actor Jim Sarbh won the Best Performance in a Negative role for the movie.

Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury left with the Best Direction grant for "Pink", a hard-hitting dramatization which set forth the message that when a lady says no, it is a no.

If it weren't for the heavy downpours that besieged New York City, we wouldn't have been surprised if Alia Bhatt, Katrina Kaif and their ilk turned up in chariots and full regalia to complement their princess-ready ballgowns at the IIFA 2017 awards.

A bevy of celebrities put their best fashion foot forward at the IIFA Awards.

A R Rahman awarded for his 25 years of musical contribution.

Udta Punjab didn't just stop with bagging the Best Actor and Actress awards, Diljit Dosanjh was awarded with the title of Best Debutant and also, Kanika Kapoor was the Best Singer in the female category for crooning songs in the film. Pink actress Taapsee Pannu was named woman of the year.

Her latest movie Jagga Jasoos released on Friday but so far has failed to create the magic that it was expected to perform at the Box Office.

As hosts, Karan Johar and Saif Ali Khan attempted to keep the humor alive, but beyond a point, the crowd wasn't very engaged and booed them in between.

But the best was kept for the last as Salman Khan took to the stage for the finale performance and danced on "Radio" and "Main hoon hero".
