Speaking of the honour, Karan Johar said, ”It’s not very often that I’m at a loss for words, but this is one such occasion… The Padma Shri. Such an honour to receive one of the highest civilian awards in the country. Overwhelmed by so many emotions right now.  Humbled, elated and also thankful for the opportunity to live my dream every day, to create and to entertain. I know my father would be proud and I wish he was here to share this moment with me. #blessed”

It’s a moment of extreme pride for #KanganaRanaut, her team and everyone who has been working tirelessly towards receiving this prestigious accolade, #PadmaShri. Kangana whole heartedly thanks the Government of India, all the well-wishers and fans for the immense love and support. She sends her deepest regards straight from Chennai where she is shooting for #Thalaivi. Jai Hind. ????????????

Expressing her joy over the news, Ekta Kapoor shares, “Overwhelmed & Emotional! My foray into the industry started when I was just 17. I constantly heard I was ‘too young’, ‘too raw’ and it was ‘too soon’ to make things happen. Through the years I’ve realised it’s never ‘too soon’ to live out your dreams and being ‘too young’ is probably the best thing. Today, as I’m conferred with the 4th highest civilian honor- ‘Padmashri’, I’m humbled. I hope to continue breaking boundaries, to continue giving young talent a chance and to strive to give back to the country for all the love that’s come my way. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect, as this news arrives 2 days before my son’s first birthday. Grateful & Thankful!”
