“Thank you @IIFA, @wizsabbas, @virafsarkari, @WizAndreTimmins for making today a memorable one to cherish,” Rahman tweeted after his win.The hosts for the ceremony were Saif Ali Khan and Johar, who had the audience in splits with their funny one-liners and banter. However, it was not all smooth-sailing for the duo as the audience booed at them several times during the show at the jam-packed MetLife stadium.

Varun, later took to the stage for his solo performance, during which he paid a tribute to his father, filmmaker David Dhawan, who completed 30 years in the film industry.

He treated fans by performing on hit numbers from 90s movie Judwaa like “Oonchi hai building” and “Tan tana tan”, which are being recreated for his upcoming film Judwaa 2.

Raabta co-stars Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon performed together on songs from their recently released film.

Actress Katrina Kaif took the stage and grooved on songs like “Afghan jalebi”, “Galti se mistake”, “Dhoom machale” and “Kaala chashma”.

But the best was kept for last as Salman Khan took to the stage for the finale performance and danced on “Radio” and “Main hoon hero”.

There was also a dance -off between original Judwaa star Salman and Varun, who is reprising the superstar’s character in the film’s reboot.

Unlike previous editions, no international stars were part of the IIFA celebrations this year.
