Moreover, Shahid and Alia deserved to be the best actor and actress as they have done the most challenging roles of their career in the film.

As hosts, Karan Johar and Saif Ali Khan attempted to keep the humour alive, but beyond a point, the crowd wasn't very engaged and booed them in between. In a special category, Taapsee Pannu won the Woman of the Year award for Pink.

Sushant Singh Rajput, 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".

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. Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury also won the award for the Best Direction at the 2017 IIFA.

In the Best Lyrics category, the contenders were Amitabh Bhattacharya for "Channa mereya" from "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, ' Gulzar for "Aave re Hitchki" from "Mirzya" and Tanveer Ghazi for 'Tu chal" from Pink.
