In a city that never sleeps, the Metlife Stadium came alive with the IIFA Awards celebration on Saturday night with Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt becoming proud winners of the Best Actor trophies for their remarkable work in Udta Punjab.
In the midst of all this, actor Sushant Singh Rajput tweeted something rather cryptic. Tagging the award ceremony, he wrote, “[email protected] hahahaha”. The actor did not win an award, and his tweet is being interpreted as a classic case of ‘grapes are sour’.
The M S Dhoni biopic star took to Twitter and posted:
After his tweet, fans fired back at him with some hilarious reactions.
While some were rather mean about his tweet, others came out in support of the actor and said that he didn’t need any accolade to his name for being a worthy star.
However, a source very close to the actor told The Indian Express, “Sushant’s tweet had nothing to do with the awards. It was simply an expression of having a successful graduation from a background dancer, to now being an actor performing at the very same award function. In fact the tweet was posted right after Sushant’s performance and had no relevance to the award ceremony. As opposed to the speculation, not getting an award doesn’t affect Sushant as he is very secure as an actor.”
