Alia Bhatt was awarded for her exemplary performances through the years with the Honorary Entertainment Makers Award. Accepting the trophy, the actress extended her gratitude to the country of Saudi Arabia and its royalty. She said, "It's a privilege to be here in this nation, the nation that is currently doing so much to unite us all and bring us all under one roof in the name of cinema. It doesn't happen very often where countless talents from the West, and East come together under one roof and celebrate each other. So thank you for making this happen."


Alia further went on to talk about her love for movies and cinemas. She recalled how her life has been revolving around the movies since she was very little. The actress stated, “It's truly an extraordinary night. I'm obsessed with movies, it's all I know. I've said this before, I think when I was born, I came out on 'Lights, camera, action'. That's how much cinema means to me. One of the things, if we are talking about joy, one of the greatest things in our lives is love. So tonight when I go back home, I take back with me the love of the movies and the love that I felt here in Riyadh. So thank you so much, and here's to the magic of movies."
