Talking about this win, Kher said, “Thank you New York City International Film Festival (NYCIFF) for this great honour. It’s humbling to be declared the Best Actor in this prestigious film festival. The credit goes to the whole young team of Happy Birthday and my co-actor Aahana Kumra, thanks to the director Prasad Kadam, and rest of the team.”
The movie’s co-producer Girish Johar said, “It’s overwhelming to receive these two awards at an international Film Festival. Anupam Sir, is a global icon; whatever we say always falls short.” He further continued, “Prasad is an extremely talented director and was also nominated in the Best Director category. He has done wonders.”
