Amit Sadh: 'Thank you, #StardustAwards, for this honor. My deepest gratitude to the entire team who made Breathe possible, who made Kabir Sawant- the whole team, cast, and crew. My audience, thank you for always waiting patiently for each season to release, watching me, and sending me endless messages of appreciation and love, making Kabir Sawant iconic.
'Kabir Sawant is a labor of hard work, sweat, and internalizing effort. The role has given me so much. I want to take this moment to put out my wish that's been ignited in my heart. So, here I am, openly agreeing that I am not done with Kabir Sawant yet. My deepest desire is to play a spin-off of this character. (Just putting it out there, haha)
'There is so much more in him, and I am sure you all are not done yet with Kabir. Hope you are listening @mayankvsharma.'

Aayush Sharma: 'Wow, I remember couple of years back being a kid in Himachal who used to buy the Stardust magazine every month because it was our gateway into Bollywood. I used to wait to see which actor is going to be on the cover of this prestigious magazine. The fact I was present at 50 years of Stardust was special enough but Getting awarded “Rising Superstar of Tomorrow,” made the night even more special for me. Though I don’t deserve it & it’s too early for me. I will like to thank Stardust for inspiring a young actor like me to work harder to live up to this title. For me this Award is a goal post that I will strive for everyday. Thank you so much Stardust for this honor.'
