Overjoyed by the award and a houseful audience during the screening of the film, Tauquir said that Hiralal Sen Padak is not just another accolade for him. “The name Hiralal Sen has a mounting importance to me. I am truly delighted and proud to receive the award named after him,” he said during the ceremony.
