International Indian Film Academy Awards was one of the prestagious awards of Indian Film Industry. IIFA 2017 winners list is out and Alia Bhatt and Shahid Kapoor won Best Actors for Udta Punjab, where as the Best film award went to Neerja in which the lead was Sonam Kapoor.
The Bollywood biggies gathered under one roof to congratulate the most deserving nominations. For the first time in eighteen years, IIFA had been organised in New York City.
This year, the star-studded event happened at MetLife Stadium in New York. Both Shahid and Alia were emotional about winning the award for a film which made its way to the big screen after fighting the censor board, and let mainstream performers like them take up something risky .
Katrina Kaif gave away the award to Shahid, while Varun Dhawan announced Alia as the Best Actor Female at the event.
