IIFA 2017 Nominations Revealed. Aamir Khan Dangal Ignored

IIFA 2017: Aamir Khan's Dangal has not been nominated in a single category
 
HIGHLIGHTS
Dangal and Rustom haven't received any nominations
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil has been nominated in 8 categories
Dangal is currently busting the box office in China
 
The final IIFA nominations have been revealed and the list has a Dangal-shaped hole in it. The makers of the wrestling drama, starring Aamir Khan, reportedly didn't submit the film for consideration when the voting for final nominees began a month ago. Aamir Khan famously refused to attend award shows - he didn't show up to collect the Filmfare award for Best Actor that he won for playing wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat in Dangal. It appears that his film also isn't feeling the need to be validated by trophies - the five star reviews and Dangal's mega success at the box office are plainly enough. The movie is currently busting the box office in China.



Also overlooked in the IIFA nominations is Akshay Kumar, this year's winner of the National Award for Best Actor. Manoj Bajpayee is also a notable omission, ignored in the Best Actor category despite his acclaimed performance in Aligarh.
 
So who has been nominated? Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is up for Best Film and Best Director. It's stars Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma are nominated for Best Actor and Actress. Alia Bhatt is nominated twice in the Best Actress category, for Dear Zindagi and Udta Punjab. Shah Rukh Khan's double role in Fan has earned him a double nomination. Amitabh Bachchan is up for both Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor.
 
Pink, Neerja, M S Dhoni: The Untold Story and Sultan also have multiple nods - Salman Khan's Best Actor nomination for Sultan is likely to cause some grumbling.
 
IIFA 2017 will be held in New York on July 14 and 15.
