Even though many people are of the view that the International Film Academy or IIFA 2017 was quite the dud, social media is still reeling under all its dazzling pictures. The who’s who of Bollywood landed in New York and raised the temperature of the city like never before. While pictures of celebrities at the awards gala have flooded the internet, actor Sushant Singh Rajput had to face the brunt of his ‘expressions’ on Twitter.

We all know that Shahid Kapoor won the Best Actor award for Udta Punjab and Alia Bhatt won the Best Actress award for the same film at IIFA 2017. In the midst of all this, Sushant Singh Rajput went on and tweeted tagging IIFA , “@iifa hahahaha” which was seen cryptically by many, as a reaction for not being able to win the Best Actor award.

The actor, who performed at the event, lost the award for his brilliant work in MS Dhoni: The Untold Story. And his tweet has been interpreted as a case of sour grapes, and in no time he began to get trolled for that on social media.

Here is Sushant Singh Rajput’s tweet:

However, a source close to Sushant defended the actor. The source said, “Sushant’s tweet had nothing to do with the awards. It was simply an expression of having a successful graduation from a background dancer, to now being an actor performing at the very same award function. Infact the tweet was posted right after Sushant’s performance and had no relevance to the award ceremony. As opposed to the speculation, not getting an award doesn’t affect Sushant as he is very secure as an actor.”
