From Katrina's birthday to taking jibe at Kangana on nepotism, IIFA has been doing the rounds recently. Neerja bagged the Best Movie award. Alia and Shahid bagged the awards for best performers in leading role for Udta Punjab. 
New York, also known as the Big Apple was the host city for ​​IIFA Awards 2017. But​, ​ do you ​​​know why is New York nicknamed Big Apple? 

​The nickname actually springs from catchphrase used in the 1920s by New York Morning Telegraph sports writer John J. Fitz Gerald in his horse racing column, “Around the Big Apple. ” Starting on February 18, 1924, he began the every column with the header, “The Big Apple. The dream of every lad that ever threw leg over thoroughbred and the goal of all horsemen. There's only one Big Apple. That's New York. ”
