IIFA 2017 WINNERS Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt declared as the Best Actors of the year, by fans – BollywoodLife readers have picked Alia Bhatt and Salman Khan as the most deserving to win Best Actor and Best Actress title at IIFA 2017 – check out the full winners list here.
And the results are out! While the main IIFA Awards night will take place in NYC tomorrow. We conducted a poll asking our readers to suggest who according to them deserve the coveted trophy this year. Of course, the nominations were finalised by the IIFA committee itself who will soon declare the winners on the basis of public voting which was open globally, until last month. But considering the trophies will be only given out tomorrow during the awards night, we ran this poll on BL to get an idea of who has more chances of taking home the IIFA trophy this year. And there….there….BL readers have convincingly voted for Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt as the ‘Best Actors Of 2017.”
The Best actor nominations had Salman competing with Ranbir Kapoor for Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Shah Rukh Khan for Fan, Sushant Singh Rajput for MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, Amitabh Bachchan for Pink and Shahid Kapoor for Udta Punjab. However, 45 percent of our readers have excitedly only voted for Salman as Sultan, proving that he needs to be honoured by IIFA this year.
However, in case of Alia, the competition is comparatively very close considering she has beaten Sonam Kapoor with a margin of only 3 percent votes.
So does it mean it’s still a tie breaking situation between Alia and Sonam at IIFA? While Alia has been nominated for critically acclaimed film Udta Punjab. Sonam Kapoor has been added to the IIFA list for her National Award winning film – Neerja.
It’s interesting how despite getting the maximum nominations, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil has failed to bag many votes in our poll. Let’s see if these results match with the official winners list of IIFA that’ll be announced tomorrow. Until then, keep watching this space as we’ll be back with more updates on IIFA 2017, right here only on BollywoodLife.
