The 2017 IIFA Awards, officially known as the 18th International Indian Film Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the International Indian Film Academy honoring the best Hindi films of 2016, occurred in East Rutherford, New Jersey on 14-15 July 2017.

Our ELLE June covergirl Sonakshi Sinha contributed to the blinding flash of bling in a sheer mermaid gown from La Bourjoisie, while Disha Patani pulled a Bella Hadid at Cannes earlier this year in an itsy-bitsy concoction of jewels. "Thanks team IIFA and "Udta Punjab"," he tweeted.

Best Female Playback Singer: Tulsi Kumar for Airlift.

Best Actor in a comic role: Varun Dhawan for Dishoom.

Best Debutant - Male: Diljit Dosanjh for Udta Punjab.

Meanwhile, Shakun Batra and Ayesha Devitre Dhillon walked away with the award for Best Story. Performing artist Taapsee Pannu, who assumed a crucial part in "Pink", named the Woman of the Year.

As hosts, Karan Johar and Saif Ali Khan attempted to keep the humor alive, but beyond a point, the crowd wasn't very engaged and booed them in between. However, it was not all smooth-sailing for the duo as the audience booed at them several times during the show at the jam-packed MetLife stadium.

Raabta co-stars Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon performed together on songs from their recently released film.

Moreover, the handsome hunk took to his Instagram page, and as a gesture of thankfulness to his lovely wife Mira, he posted a picture of theirs from the green carpet and captioned, "My strength".

Unlike previous editions, no worldwide stars were part of the IIFA celebrations this year.
