The IIFA Awards 2017 was a star studded affair, held at the Met Life Stadium in New York. The evening was ‘pretty’ eventful. From Katrina magically appearing in two places at once to Karan, Saif and Varun taking digs at Kangana, the drama didn’t end there!
Shahid Kapoor bagged the best actor award for his incredible performance in ‘Udta Punjab’. One of the contenders was reel life MS Dhoni, Sushant Singh Rajput. Unhappy with the loss, Sushant tweeted this to IIFA,

Quite weird, we must say!
However, that was not it. Twitter didn’t take Sushant’s ‘HAHAHA’ too well and started slamming/ laughing back at him. Well, we will let the tweets do all the talking!
1. He is neither impressed with his acting skills nor with his tweeting skills!
Iske to tweet me bhi over acting dikhta hai https://t.co/RAloHeIybn

While there were many who took pot shots at Sushant, his fans came out in support too…
1. He knows it all…
Sarcasm wali hasi 😝 m telling u SSR, these award functions are just show off, everything is already planned!! They are completely biased 😩😑😒

2. And Nepotism strikes again!
They can award anyone they want but we (the people) know who the real winner is , its @itsSSR ! But Bollywood has to get hold of nepotism .

4. There is always a next time!
SSR deserved it more than Shahid. But then film awards are never about 'deserving'. Let these not deter you

Interestingly, Anupam Kher won the award for Best Supporting Actor for playing Dhoni’s father. Sushant’s cryptic tweet has set the Twitterati buzzing. Will this embroil into another controversy?
