The 18th edition of the IIFA Awards was held at the MetLife Stadium. From a special bell ringing ceremony at the NASDAQ to a celebrity studded live entertainment show in Times Square, the 2017 IIFA lineup boasted of some of the most iconic venues. The year 2016-2017 was particularly path-breaking with gritty movies like Udta Punjab, Pink, and biopics like Neerja and MS Dhoni wowing the audiences and critics alike. The best film award was picked by Sonam Kapoor’s Neerja.

Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan were amongst the stars that performed live to popular songs from their movies.
