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

Talking about the award, Shahid said, "This is my first award for Padmaavat this year, so I am really very happy. 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."


Shahid and Mira are blessed with a beautiful daughter, Misha. Recently, the couple announced they are waiting for the arrival of their second child.

Talking about becoming a father for the second time, Shahid shared, "I am very happy and we just felt like sharing it with everyone. Mira wanted to put it out on Instagram and I thought that the photograph was really cute. It was a spontaneous decision."


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 and is very deserving of all the applause and appreciation," said the Jab We Met actor.

Shahid added that Ishaan should consider himself fortunate that he is getting good work opportunities. "He has to put his head down with humility and work hard," shared the Udta Punjab actor.


Shahid will be next seen in Batti Gul Meter Chalu which also stars Shraddha Kapoor and Yami Gautam. Talking about the film's progress, Shahid stated, "70% of the film is complete and we will resume shooting next week."

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, Rajkummar Rao and many others.
