Check out full nomination list of popular categories at IIFA Awards 2017!

IIFA awards for this year is round the corner and the glamorous award show is all set to be held in New York from 14th – 15th July. From the likes of Salman Khan to Katrina Kaif to Ranbir Kapor and Shahid Kapoor are expected to add shine and glitter to this week-long extravaganza. We have shared with you their moments from the US Consulate where everyone is having a ball. Now we have also got our hands on the nomination list with Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil bagging maximum nominations. Yes, right from Best film to Best Actor – Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is leading the charts with top honours in every next popular category.

Of course, there’s also Salman Khan’s Sultan, Shah Rukh Khan’s Fan, Sonam Kapoor’s Neerja, Sushant Singh Rajput’s MS Dhoni: The Untold Story being credited for its brilliance. But it’s quite surprising how Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar have not being nominated under a single category at IIFA this year. I mean, Akshay’s Rustom was honoured with a National Award this year while Aamir’s Dangal was declared as 2016’s biggest blockbuster but still, both the films haven’t made it to the IIFA nominations this year…

Nevertheless, with the official nominations out for the popular category, it’s time for you to vote! PS: Global Voting poll is open from 20th May 2017 till 18th June 2017.
