Published: 22nd April 2018

Shahid Kapoor, who bagged the Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Award (Best Actor) for his performance in Padmaavat, has dedicated the award to his wife, Mira Rajput.

Talking about the award he won on Saturday, Shahid said: "This is my first award for Padmaavat this year, so I am really very happy and I would like to dedicate this award to my wife, Mira, because she tolerated me for a year during this period and without her I wouldn't have been able to do this film. So I am very thankful to her."

Shahid is also happy for his brother Ishaan Khattar winning accolades for his debut movie Beyond The Clouds helmed by Majid Majidi. "Ishaan has given a spectacular performance. He is getting a lot of love. He is very deserving of all the applause and appreciation; he is a very talented boy," he said.

"Of course he just started but he has lots to learn and a long way to go. He has to put his head down, with humility and work hard. He is getting good opportunities to work with people like Majid Majidi and now Shashank Khaitan, I think he should consider himself fortunate," the Udta Punjab actor said.

Next, Shahid Kapoor will be seen in Batti Gul Meter Chalu, which also stars Shraddha Kapoor and Yami Gautam. Talking about the Shree Narayan Singh directorial's progress, Shahid said: "Seventy per cent of the film is complete and some 30 per cent is left. Next week we start shooting again and I believe by May the shooting will be complete."

The Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Award 2018 was graced by several Bollywood personalities including Karan Johar, Simi Garewal, Shilpa Shetty, Kartik Aryan, Aditi Rao Hydari, Kriti Sanon, and Rajkummar Rao.
