Sharib Hashmi on winning the prestigious award

During the event on Sunday, Sharib shared a heartfelt note and mentioned, "I want to say many things. I was watching DDLJ with my daughter yesterday. That 10-year-old reacted the same way we did when we were in college. This is my first supporting award which I am not getting for The Family Man. I am here because of Raj and DK. They helped kickstart my journey. This is an extremely special award for me because it is my first for Tarla. The film is very close to my heart because it was modelled after my father - the moustache, trousers, checkered shirts - they all represent him. There are times when I felt my dad was sitting there and watching me. He always wanted me to be an actor but I never pursued acting while he was alive. Hence, I dedicate this award to my father. I would also like to that Piyush Gupta, who directed and wrote the film. Ashviny Iyer Tiwari, Nitesh Tiwari, Ronnie sir, everybody involved with Tarla and especially, my co-actor Huma Qureshi, who supported me through it all, I found a friend for life in her."
