IIFA Nominations 2018: Tumhari Sulu Leads With 7 Nods, Newton Follows

Vidya Balan plays the protagonist in Tumhari Sulu (Vidya Balan))

The Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards nominations for this year are here and guess who took the top spot with most nominations? The correct answer is Vidya Balan’s Tumhari Sulu. The film scored nominations in seven categories as it fetched nominations for both Vidya Balan and filmmaker Suresh Triveni in the Best Actor (Female) and Best Direction categories respectively. Tumhari Sulu has also been nominated in the following categories – Best Film, Best Story, Best Performance In A Supporting Role (both Male and Female) and Best Music Direction. With the second highest number of nominations, Newton is a close contender and can beat Tumhari Sulu in the Best Film category.

In the Best Film category, Tumhari Sulu and Newton will compete with movies like Bareilly Ki Barfi, Hindi Medium and Toilet – Ek Prem Katha. Irrfan Khan, who is currently under treatment in London, has also been nominated in the Best Actor (male) category along with Rajkummar Rao. Akshay Kumar, Ranbir Kapoor and Adil Hussain are also fellow contenders.

Sridevi’s MOM, which fetched the late actress her first ever National Award posthumously, has also scored a nomination for her in the Best Actor (Female) category. Sridevi was honoured with the Best Actress National Award this year, which was received by her daughters Janhvi and Khushi and husband Boney Kapoor. Other contenders include Alia Bhatt, Zaira Wasim and Bhumi Pednekar.
