The star-studded event IIFA Awards 2017 (18th International Indian Film Academy Awards ceremony) is all set to happen in New York this year where all the Bollywood celebrities would be seen under one roof. This is one of the most prestigious and glamorous event that no one would want to give a miss. In fact even fans eagerly look forward to see their favourite superstars especially the King of Romance, Shah Rukh Khan. But looks like last year, even this time King Khan will not attend the event and there are two major reasons behind it, one is professional and the other is personal.

Many leading celebrities of Hindi cinema would be performing but we won’t see Shah Rukh Khan. And the major reason is, he would be busy with the promotions of his upcoming flick ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’, reports a leading media daily. SRK’s film is slated to release in August and IIFA Awards 2017 on July 14 and 15. Another reason is his elder son Aryan Khan broke his nose while playing football due to which he needs to undergo surgery and SRK has to travel abroad for it. No matter what, SRK would chose to be beside his son. (ALSO READ: Jab Harry Met Sejal poster: Shah Rukh Khan’s energy is too infectious to not get affected)

A source revealed to DNA, “Shah Rukh’s son Aryan broke his nose while playing football at school. Aryan is already on medication, but the doctors have advised him to undergo surgery. SRK will be travelling abroad for that. It has been scheduled around the same time as the award function, and his priorities are very clear. The concerned father will obviously prefer being by his son’s side.” (ALSO READ: IIFA awards 2017 nominations: Shahid Kapoor’s Udta Punjab, Sonam Kapoor’s Neerja, Ranbir Kapoor’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil dominate the list)
