Shahid, Alia win best actors at IIFA 2017

Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury took home the award for Best Director for his film Pink. In the movie Shahid Kapoor was seen playing the role of a Punjabi Rockstar named Tommy Singh who was seen coping with a drug addiction.

The quintessential cute girl-next-door, Alia Bhatt was certainly the cynosure of IIFA 2017 as she picked up the Best Actress Award for her stellar performance in Udta Punjab and slaying the green carpet with her gorgeous and a subtle play of powerful style.

Styled by Ami Patel, Alia chose a multi coloured crystal detailed Zahair Murad voluminous ball gown for IIFA Awards 2017 and flaunted her alluring décolletage and perfectly cinched waist.

Three-day celebration of Indian cinema, the 18th edition of the International Indian Film Academy Awards, was held in NY on from July 13 to July 15. "Congratulations @aliabhatt." On the other hand, Alia wrote: "Here's to Udta Punjab @shahidkapoor".

Apart from them, another Udta Punjab actor Diljit Dosanjh won the Best Debutant (male) award.

In the last segment of the awards night, when she turned up on the stage to present Best Actor award to Shahid Kapoor, the editor did a little blunder which didn't go unnoticed by TV audience.

The music category saw Pritam winning the Best Music Direction for "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil", and Amitabh Bhattacharya bagging the Best Lyrics accolade for "Channa mereya". Except this, Varun also paid tribute to his dad David Dhawan.

Born to Kashmiri father Mohammed Kaif and British mother Susanna Turquotte, Katrina began her modeling career in Hawaii at the age of fourteen and her first assignment was for a jewelry campaign.

There was also a dance face-off between original Judwaa star Salman and Varun, who is reprising the superstar's character in the film's reboot.
