IIFA Awards 2017 have been announced in New York and it’s an open secret now that the award of the Best Actor is grabbed by none other than Shahid Kapoor for “Udta Punjab” in which he portrayed the character of a drug abusing rock star.
Undeniably, Shahid played his role to the perfection and was highly praised for it too! Interestingly, Alia Bhatt got the Best Actress award for the same movie while Varun Dhawan got the Best Performance in a Comic Role Award for “Dishoom”.
However, this awards ceremony irked one Bollywood actor who couldn’t make it to the list despite giving his career’s best performance in the biopic made on Indian cricketer MS Dhoni. Yes, you guessed it right! We are talking about Sushant Singh Rajput who has expressed his dejection and unhappiness in a satirical way by mocking the jury’s decision.
He took to Twitter, tagged IIFA and wrote, “hahahaha”

Now this naturally suggests that the actor is disappointed on losing the award of the Best Actor, as it was a golden opportunity for him since fans praised his performance in the flick.
However, Twitter trolled him brutally for his ironic tweet and here are few selected reactions:

Let these awards not deter you:
SSR deserved it more than Shahid. But then film awards are never about 'deserving'. Let these not deter you

There were some sensible comments too like this one:
you always do your work with sincerity and selflesness thats enough!!, work is worship stardom comes and goes like wind.

Amazingly, Only Anupam Kher got the award of the “Best Actor In A Supporting Role” for “M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story” wherein he played Dhoni’s father, Pan Singh Dhoni.
Sushant put in his 100% in the film and his hard-work, dedication and sincerity were apparently visible. It is obvious for the actor to expect something he think he deserves and jury’s decision might not be less than a shock for him. Well, nothing can be said with confirmation regarding Sushant’s tweet until he himself reveals more details!
