A mysterious tweet from Sushant Singh Rajput is being interpreted by social media as a case of sour grapes after Shahid Kapoor won Best Actor at the IIFA Awards over the weekend. Sushant, who was nominated for his performance in M S Dhoni: The Untold Story, tweeted cryptically “hahahaha,” tagging the IIFA Twitter handle, on July 15, the day the award ceremony took place in New Jersey. The 31-year-old actor’s post left social media confused – after much speculation, Twitter concluded that Sushant’s intent was to belittle the award organisers for: a) honouring Shahid Kapoor as Best Actor over his own performance and b) giving Varun Dhawan an award for Best Actor in a Comic Role in honour of his less-than-acclaimed performance in the film Dishoom.
This is Sushant’s tweet – he has not clarified what he means by it:

Elsewhere on Twitter, the comments were unforgiving:
Sushant Singh Rajput is so arrogant and obviously a cheater. Bdw acted well in M.S.Dhoni.
