The 18th edition of International Indian Film Academy Awards concluded yesterday and was a star-studded affair with celebs such as Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon among others in attendance.
While the event boasted of superlative performances and cheeky banter, the telecast however made a goof up which has become the talk of the town.
What is it, you ask?
Well, in the last segment of the awards night, Katrina turned up on stage to present Best Actor award to Shahid Kapoor. However, owing to an editor’s blunder she was showcased sitting in the audience too at the same time. The actress at two places at one time was noticed by Twitterati and what followed next were trolls enjoying a good laugh at this goof up.
Take a look at a few comments:
