... A huge crowd gathered at the Lakshman Mela grounds to have a glimpse of Hrithik. After receiving the Rs. 1 lakh award, the humble actor immediately announced that he would like to donate the award money for the welfare of the handicapped children. An overwhelmed Hrithik thanked Lucknow and its people for giving him such an honor, and said, "It seems that today, I have got everything. But still I have to go very far. "

Uttar Pradesh Development Council Chairman Amar Singh asserted that the Lucknow Mahotsav had provided an exceptionally wonderful opportunity to display the state's rich culture and heritage. Film actor Farooq Sheikh remarked that it was commendable that Uttar Pradesh was conferring the Awadh Samman on an outsider when its own people are denied jobs outside the state. He congratulated the writer and said that it was a matter of pride that a great writer like Javed Siddiqui was honored with the award.
