  • IIFA Awards 2017 Sushant Singh Rajput's Cryptic Tweet Aimed At Shahid Kapoor Twitter Thinks

Sushant is one of the outspoken actors in Bollywood, but sometimes his blunt response backfires. The top honours included Best Actress for Shahid Kapoor's Udta Punjab co-star Alia Bhatt and Best Film for Neerja, starring Sonam Kapoor. In the video, the duo can be seen playing with the IIFA trophy post the award function. "Congratulations @aliabhatt." On the other hand, Alia wrote, "Here's to Udta Punjab @shahidkapoor".

Best picture went to Neerja, a thriller based on the true story of a purser who helped save the lives of more than 350 passengers when Libyan-backed hijackers stormed Pan Am Flight 73 in Karachi, Pakistan, in 1986.

Pritam Chakraborty has won the Best Music Direction award for the Karan Johar directorial, while Amitabh Bhattacharya won the Best Lyricist award for the movie's song 'Channa Mere Ya'.

Some of the other winners include Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury who was given the award for Best Director for his film "Pink".

Music maestro AR Rahman was honoured with a special award for completing 25 years in the industry.

Sushant Singh Rajput lost the IIFA 2017 Best Actor award to Shahid Kapoor, and had to face the brunt of his "expressions" on Twitter.

The best playback singer female award was shared by Tulsi Kumar for "Soch na sake" (Airlift) and Kanika Kapoor for "Da da dasse" (Udta Punjab).

"Raabta" actors Sushant and Kriti performed on retro tracks, while Varun paid a tribute to his father David Dhawan by grooving to his chartbusters. "The idea is to spread the magic and promote 'Indian cinema".
