The 18th edition of the International Indian Film Academy awards ended on a high with Udta Punjab winning four awards on Saturday night.

In a boomerang video shared by Shahid on the photo-blogging site Instagram, the "Shaandaar" co-stars can be seen happily playing with the award after the ceremony.

As hosts, Karan Johar and Saif Ali Khan attempted to keep the humour alive, but beyond a point, the crowd wasn't very engaged and booed them in between.

One of the most prestigious award shows of Bollywood, IIFA (International Indian Film Academy Awards) has already taken place in NY. While we all are aware about dance performances, trophy to best actors for their performance in their last year's films and others happenings at the event, but, what shook us by surprise is the tweet of Sushant Singh Rajput.

In fact, the evening was quite merry for Shahid as he also won the Best Actor Award in the leading role category for his film, Udta Punjab.
