At the Filmfare Middle East Achievers Night in Dubai, Shehnaaz said, “Main apne family, apne friends aur meri team ko bilkul bhi nahi dedicate karungi kyuki yeh meri mehnat hai (I’ll not dedicate this to my family, friends or team because this is my hard work)… (Looking at the award) Aur tu mera hai aur mera hi rahega, theek hai (You are mine and you will always be mine. Okay)?”
Shehnaaz then said, “Ek cheeze aur. Main ek bande ko thank you bolna chahti hun. Thank you mere life mein aane k liye. Itna mere pe invest karliya ki aaj main yaha pe pahuchi hun (One more thing. I want to say thank you to a certain person. Thank you for coming to my life. You have invested so much in me that today I’ve reached here). Sidharth Shukla this is for you (she raised the trophy as she said this).”
“How sweet… such a strong girl, she survived a broken heart with such grace… Sid (Sidharth) would be so proud of her… We are proud of her,” reacting to the clip, a fan said. “I can’t control my tears, proud of you Shehnaaz,” said another person. “I’m speechless – he’ll be so proud of her now from up there,” commented another Instagram user. “Brave girl… Keep going Shehnaaz. He’s cheering for you from up there,” read a comment.
