The IIFA 2017 fever has gripped the whole world and though the show took place in new York, we could feel the excitement in India too. Several stars including Alia Bhatt, Salman Khan, Varun Dhawan, Sushant Singh Rajput, Shahid Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Disha Patani sizzled during the show. However, it's the hosts of the prestigious award show, Karan Johar and Saif Ali Khan who are making the headlines. No, not for their hosting skills or hilarious jokes or impromptu performances, but for their dig at Kangana Ranaut and her nepotism remark.
According to an exclusive report in India Today, Karan Johar and Saif Ali Khan took several digs at Kangana Ranaut throughout the show. The duo made several indirect references while they were on the stage, from chanting, "Nepotism rocks, nepotism rocks" to Karan Johar yelling on top of voice, "I'm here because of my father, Saif is here because of his mother and Varun is here also because of his father. What's the big deal?" And once Varun was on stage, the trio even started dancing to the hit song from Karan Johar's film, Bole Chudiya Bole Kangana, making it very evident at what they were trying to do. We wonder what Kangana has to say about this? (ALSO READ - IIFA Awards 2017 FULL winners list: Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt win Best Actor trophy for Udta Punjab while Neerja bags Best Movie award)
