Bollywood loves its award nights, and stars turn up in their best attires to attend them. Recently the International Film Academy or IIFA for 2017 concluded and social media is still reeling with all the pictures. The who’s who of Bollywood turned up in New York and raised the temperature like never before. While pictures of celebrities are floating on social media, the list of winners has also been revealed. While Shahid Kapoor won the Best Actor award for Udta Punjab, Alia Bhatt won the best actress award for the same film. In the midst of all this, actor Sushant Singh Rajput tweeted something rather cryptic. Tagging the award ceremony, he wrote, “.@IIFA hahahaha”. The actor who performed at the award ceremony did not win an award, and his tweet is being interpreted as a classic case of ‘grapes of sour’.
This is what he tweeted.

The actor’s recent film, Raabta and its eventual fate at the box office were not forgotten by people. How could they?
IIFA: ‘Raabta’ has made Indian film industry proud!

The stars assembled at New York to join in the celebrations. Everyone from Karan Johar, Katrina Kaif to Varun Dhawan and Salman Khan made an appearance and mesmerised the fans with their performance. While others made news for their bold and unconventional fashion choices.
