Sharad spoke about how this award ceremony was special to him.
“Aaj kal bahut awards ho rahe hai, pehle jab kisi actor ko award milta tha, toh celebration kuch dino tak chalta tha. Ab aaj ek award milta hai, kal ek aur, toh who celebration thodhi short lived ho gayi hai. Having said that, having survived for 8 years is a big deal. When I got this award for the first time, the feeling was very good. International iconic ka tag ek actor ko milta hai toh kain na kahin ek feeling aati hai ki aur mehnat karni padegi. Every actor wants to be appreciated. Ab aisa ho gaya hai ki awards bahut saare hai, but kuch awards actors ke leeye bahut khaas hote hai. (Nowadays there are many awards. Earlier when an actor would get an award, the celebration would continue for days. But now, today you get one award, and tomorrow another one, so that celebration is short lived. However, International Iconic’s tag is special and one feels motivated to do more. Every actor wants to be appreciated. Some awards are special,” he says.
