Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, the proud winners of the IIFA 2017

Rounding up the trio of serious- minded films was Pink, a movie about sexual violence against women, which got Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury the Best Director award. In the film, Shahid Kapoor portrayed the role of Punjabi rockstar, Tommy Singh, who is coping with a drug addiction. The lead actress in the film, Taapsee Pannu, was chosen to be the Woman of The Year and AR Rahman was honored with the Special Contribution to Indian Cinema award.

Nothing but the best for Bollywood's best: For the main night, Alia sifted through Priyanka Chopra's directory and landed on her the genius behind her Academy Awards 2016 outing: Zuhair Murad.

If it weren't for the heavy downpours that besieged New York City, we wouldn't have been surprised if Alia Bhatt, Katrina Kaif and their ilk turned up in chariots and full regalia to complement their princess-ready ballgowns at the IIFA 2017 awards.

Best Actor Male: Shahid Kapoor for Udta Punjab.

Varun Dhawan won the IIFA award for the best performance in a comic role for Dishoom and Neerja baddie Jim Sarbh bagged the best negative role award.

Best Female Playback Singer: Tulsi Kumar for Airlift.

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

Best Lyricist: Amitabh Bhattacharya for the song Channa Mere Ya from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

The best story award went to Ayesha Devitre Dhillon and Shakun Batra for Kapoor & Sons.

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. Well, that's not all, as Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt also wished her from the stage.

He treated fans by performing on hit numbers from '90s movie "Judwaa" like "Oonchi hai building" and "Tan tana tan", which are being recreated for his upcoming film "Judwaa 2".

Katrina Kaif too took to Instagram to share a picture from her birthday party.
