After having received the honour, the actor says, “I can't explain what I'm feeling right now. It's very surreal. It's such a huge honour and I'm so happy to be a part of the ceremony today. Being at the Rashtrapati Bhavan, in the presence of the honourable President, Prime Minister and all the dignitaries, sitting amongst the other accomplished awardees and mostly having my family present made today complete. I missed my dad... I know he would have been very proud.”
