IIFA 2017: ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ bags 8 nominations, ‘Dangal’ has none!

IIFA awards, one of the most prestigious award ceremonies in Bollywood, is happening in New York this year. The extravagant affair has always grabbed quite a lot of attention and this time seems to be no exception. The IIFA fever is already catching up with the celebs and we have the nomination list for the year.

Going by the list, Karan Johar‘s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ seems to be making big at IIFA. It has acquired 8 nominations including Best Director nomination for KJo. Sushant Singh Rajput-starrer ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’ is also roaring at the nominations. The film directed by Neeraj Pandey has grabbed approximately 7 nominations.

We are quite surprised to see that Aamir Khan‘s ‘Dangal’ does not have a single nomination. The film made it big at the box office and was well received by the critics. Akshay Kumar‘s ‘Rustom’ and ‘Airlift’ too are missing from this list.
