IIFA 2017, it was announced was to be held in New York this year. The performers, the people and what to look forward to this year, in general, was announced earlier. However, fans are shocked who has been nominated this year. Aamir Khan’s Dangal, one of the blockbuster hits, critically and financially a successful film, has been completely overlooked. Not in one category do we see Dangal. The film that is leading in all the nominations is Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma-starrer Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, and both of them have been nominated for Best Actor (Male) category and Best Actor (Female) category. Aligarh, Hansal Mehta’s film, which did not find even a special mention at the National Awards 2017, has found a presence, as actor Rajkummar Rao has been nominated for Best Supporting Actor (Male) category. Udta Punjab, one of the critically acclaimed movies, has also been nominated in multiple categories. Also amiss is a mention of Akshay Kumar, the National Award winner this year.

The voting poll will be open from May 20 until June 18, 2017.
