New York: International Indian Film Academy Awards (IIFA) has always been about Indian films abroad. From the energetic performances to the awards and even the stunning style of celebrities, everything adds to the glitz and glam quotient of the event.
Over the years, celebrities have entertained their fans and IIFA has been the most star-studded and awaited award show. But with so much of glam and excitement, the event attracts a number of controversies.
While the pictures of celebrities are floating all around, the winners have also been revealed. And during all these happenings on the internet, Sushant Singh Rajput had to face the brunt of his ‘expressions’ on Twitter.
Shahid Kapoor won the award for Best Actor for the role of Tommy Singh in 'Udta Punjab'and Alia Bhatt won the Best Actress award for the same film at the IIFA 2017. In the middle of this, Sushant tweeted “@iifa hahahaha” which was seen cryptically by many, as a reaction to not being able to win the Best Actor award. The actor also performed at the event.
According to reports, “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. In fact, 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 effect Sushant as he is very secure as an actor.”
Sushant's upcoming movie includes of 'Kedarnath', 'Chanda Mama Door Ke' and 'Gustakhiyan'.
