Twelve of the most popular categories of the International Indian Film Academy Awards have been announced, ahead of the event on May 20 and 21 in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.
War film Shershaah, starring Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani, leads with a whopping 12 nominations, followed by Ranveer Singh's cricket biopic 83, which has nine, and Abhishek Bachchan's Ludo with six.
Atrangi Re follows close behind with five nods and Mimi with four.
A full list of nominations is below.
The IIFA Weekend & Awards will be held at the Etihad Arena and will feature performances by some of the biggest Indian stars across two days, with many of the top films and actors of the year being honoured on the second night.
The event was initially scheduled to be held in March, but was postponed "due to changing circumstances in the spread of the Covid-19 virus", organisers said.
"We at IIFA are responsible and committed to ensure the safety of the citizens and multitudes of IIFA fans who travel from across the globe to attend and experience the magic," they said.
