After lifting the trophy Ayushmann took to his Instagram profile to pen down a heartwarming note thanking all the critics and his fans for the unconditional love. “Filmfare for the BEST ACTOR (critics). Sigh.
When I wrapped up Article 15 I had posted a caption on my social media platforms stating that I just wrapped up the most important film of 2019. And Jitesh Pillai had asked me don’t you think you’re being too pompous. Then I edited it and changed it into ‘one of the best’.But tonight at this moment I stand corrected and validated. Thanks for your unconditional love Jitesh. 💛Article 15 also won the best film in critics tonight. Thank you Anubhav sir, your new 2.0 version is that of legend.Kisi ne nahi socha tha ki main uniform mein achcha lagoonga. Aapki vision ko salaam. Film ke co writer Gaurav Solanki ke lekhan ko salaam. Bharat ke sanvidhaan ko salaam. Hindustan ki badalti awaam (audience) ko salaam”, he wrote.
