Speaking about his win, Irrfan said, "It's amazing that I won this very same award as the Best Villian for Hassil and now it’s the Best Actor. It's humbling and I’m really glad to know how successful Hindi Medium has been as a film. I have always strongly believed that the economic of film success can be achieved with films that run high on content. Hindi Medium I do truly believe was a complete entertainer with a great message and subject backing it and that’s what makes this win even more special. The year has ended on a great note first with my last film being appreciated by all and now this".
