“Love you daddy.. Father turns photographer! The movie, Neerja, directed by Ram Madhvani, also won the National Award for the Best Hindi Film. In such a short span of time, at such a young age, with such a less number of films, she has got this recognition from the highest award in our country. He was humble enough to admit that in the midst of the excitement, all he wanted was to capture the moment himself. Congratulations @sonamakapoor !! Even before the event, he had shared a beaming picture of himself, posting it with the caption: “Dressed up & all set to accompany @sonamkapoor tonight for the #NationalAwards in Delhi! #nationalfilmawards.”
