How to detect and handle UIO interrupt.

Dear Experts
I need help regarding interrupt handling using UIO. I am using Vivado 2015.4 and Petalinux 2015.4. The board used is Zedboard.
I made the following vivado project attached as image. The interrupts from AXI and Fabric (PL-PS) are enabled. 
Afterwards i was able to export it as UIO and it shows in /dev as uio0.
My code is as follows: 
 * File:   main.c
 * Author: fss
 * Created on August 23, 2017, 12:35 PM
#include <sys/mman.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdint.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <poll.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <errno.h>
#define GPIO_DATA_OFFSET 0x00 
#define GPIO_TRI_OFFSET 0x04 
#define GPIO_DATA2_OFFSET 0x08 
#define GPIO_TRI2_OFFSET 0x0C 
#define GPIO_GLOBAL_IRQ 0x11C 
#define GPIO_IRQ_CONTROL 0x128 
#define GPIO_IRQ_STATUS 0x120
unsigned int get_memory_size(char *sysfs_path_file)

    FILE *size_fp; 
    unsigned int size; 
    // open the file that describes the memory range size that is based on the 
    // reg property of the node in the device tree 
    size_fp = fopen(sysfs_path_file, "r"); 
    if (size_fp == NULL) { 
        printf("unable to open the uio size file\n"); 
    // get the size which is an ASCII string such as 0xXXXXXXXX and then be stop 
    // using the file 
    fscanf(size_fp, "0x%08X", &size); 
    return size; 

void reg_write(void *reg_base, unsigned long offset, unsigned long value) 

    *((volatile unsigned long *)(reg_base + offset)) = value; 

unsigned long reg_read(void *reg_base, unsigned long offset) 

    return *((volatile unsigned long *)(reg_base + offset)); 

uint8_t wait_for_interrupt(int fd_int, void *gpio_ptr) 

    static unsigned int count = 0, bntd_flag = 0, bntu_flag = 0; 
        int flag_end=0;
    int pending = 0; 
    int reenable = 1; 
    unsigned int reg; 
    unsigned int value; 
    // block (timeout for poll) on the file waiting for an interrupt 
    struct pollfd fds = {
        .fd = fd_int,
        .events = POLLIN,
    int ret = poll(&fds, 1, 100);
    printf("ret is : %d\n", ret);
    if (ret >= 1) {
        read(fd_int, (void *)&reenable, sizeof(int));   // &reenable -> &pending
        // channel 1 reading 
        value = reg_read(gpio_ptr, GPIO_DATA_OFFSET); 
        if ((value & 0x00000001) != 0) { 
                    printf("Interrupt recieved");
        usleep(50000); // anti rebond 
        if(count == 10) 
            flag_end = 1; 
        // the interrupt occurred for the 1st GPIO channel so clear it 
        reg = reg_read(gpio_ptr, GPIO_IRQ_STATUS); 
        if (reg != 0) 
            reg_write(gpio_ptr, GPIO_IRQ_STATUS, 1);  
        // re-enable the interrupt in the interrupt controller thru the 
        // the UIO subsystem now that it's been handled 
        write(fd_int, (void *)&reenable, sizeof(int));
    return ret;

int main(void)
    int fd = open("/dev/uio0", O_RDWR);
    if (fd < 0) {
    int gpio_size = get_memory_size("/sys/class/uio/uio0/maps/map0/size");
    /* mmap the UIO devices */
    void * ptr_axi_gpio = mmap(NULL, gpio_size, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_SHARED, fd, 0);
    while (1) 
But the issue is that this code is not catching the interrupt. Kindly help me in this. Any suggestion/links are more than welcomed
