Anil Kapoor won Best Actor in a series at OTTplay Awards 2023 for The Night Manager
Anil Kapoor has won the Best Actor (Male) in a series by popular choice for his performance in The Night Manager at the recently held OTTplay Awards 2023. The actor managed to touch more hearts with his beautiful gesture while receiving the award. Anil dedicated the award to his dear friend Satish Kaushik, who is no more. With shaky hands, Anil read out the message that Satish sent.
Anil dedicated his award to Satish Kaushik (introducing him as a close, dear friend). He read the message, “It is a message from my dear friend, Satish Kaushik saab (hands shaking). This is the last message I got, (which was on) 27th February, 2023. Uske baad koi message nahi aaya unka. It was the last message I got and he passed away some time in March. “Kapoor saab, Shelly Rungta was pure style, suave, cool and dreadful from inside. You crafted it so beautifully and stylishly. You made Rungta the best antagonist on OTT screen. Congrats to the team. What a superb show.”
Anil on his bond with Satish Kaushik
The actor further said, “He was my best cheerleader, whether my films work or not. He would praise my performance, even when the film didn’t work. Thus, I dedicate this award to my dear friend.”
He praises Satish ‘versatile’ Kaushik
Anil Kapoor also shared a few praises for Satish Kaushik. He said, “Satish was one of the greatest actors of our country. Everybody thinks he’s got in light roles but the way he played antagonists too, was unbelievable – emotional, villain. Singer, filmmaker, writer. Whenever we worked on any of our films, Anupam Kher would be jealous that Satish would come and make his own scene.”
