The prestigious 24th annual Kalakar Awards that was held on Sunday 24 January at Kolkata, felicitated three talented actors from the Television industry with top awards.
Radhika Madan aka Ishani from "Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi" bagged the best actress award, while Karan Mehra aka Naitik from "Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai" won the best actor award.
The best rising actor title went to Rohan Mehra aka Naksh from "Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai".
Elated on receiving the award, Rohan told India Forums: "It's a very prestigious award and it's my first award of the year 2016. I hope for many more to come. It's a great feeling to receive this prestigious award; I feel privileged. Karan and I were from the same show and it was a great feeling to receive an award along with him."
Excited about receiving the best actress award, Radhika told the entertainment portal: "To be very honest, I never thought that I will bag an award for the best actress in my very first year with my very first show. I think its because of the love I receive from everyone around me, be it my fans and everyone else who supported me! I feel truly grateful right now that I had all the right people besides me."
