Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan, who won the trophy for best actor in a comic role at the Times of India Film awards (TOIFA), dedicated the award to his wife Aishwarya Rai.
The 37-year-old actor, who won accolades for his comic role in "Bol Bachchan", thanked the entire cast and crew of the movie for believing in him.
After receiving the trophy Abhishek said, "'Bol Bachchan' is very, very special film to me and I stand here in front of you humbly receiving the award," said Abhishek and thanked the film's director Rohit Shetty and co-star Ajay Devgn for "having faith in me," reported IANS.
Thanking his family and dedicating the award to Aishwarya Rai, Abhishek said, "I would like to thank my family for firstly having me because things wouldn't have worked without that. I really owe this to Aishwarya and the love and support she has given me. She makes me the person that I am."
Abhishek, who performed at the award ceremony on Saturday, added that it was a long due gig for his fans in the city. He also promised the audience at Vancouver that he would bring his father Amitabh Bachchan along with Aishwarya the next time for the awards.
"Almost five years ago me and my family were scheduled to perform in Vancouver for the Unforgettable tour (in 2008). Unfortunately, the show in Vancouver got cancelled and I promised I will make it up to you and I hope that was a bit of a payback. And I promise you next time I won't only bring Aishwarya, I will bring dad ( Amitabh Bachchan) as well," he said.
Before leaving the stage Abhishek called up his co-star from "Bol Bachchan", Krushna, and handed over the award to him saying, "you deserve this".
The event also marked the first interanational performance by Aishwarya after giving birth to daughter Aaradhya.
