Adnan Siddiqui

Adnan Siddiqui took to his Instagram handle and wrote a long wrote along with the video of himself receiving the award.

Here are the words by the actor:

"Thank God... Dear fans and admirers... As I sit down to write this note of thanks, I am overwhelmed with emotions. The journey to receiving the esteemed Pride of Performance award has been nothing short of extraordinary, and it has been a privilege to share it with you.

"I reflect on the last three decades that have passed by in a jiffy when I entered the industry with nothing but unyielding passion and focus. There were moments of doubt, grueling auditions, rejections, and times when success seemed like a distant dream. Yet, through all of this, your applause and admiration kept me going. Your love for my craft inspired me to refine with every role, every episode—protagonist, antagonist, or grey.

"I am deeply indebted to Anwar Mamu (Anwar Maqsood sahib), Qasim Jalali sahib, and Fatima Surayya Bajia (Bajjo) who played pivotal roles in planting the seed of my acting career. It was Anwar Mamu who introduced me to Qasim Sahib and cast me in his long play Khwabon Ki Zanjeer. Qasim Sahib and Fatima Suriya Bajia (bajo) then gave me the opportunity of a lifetime with Uroosa, which turned me into a star overnight. I am forever grateful to this trio for their guidance and mentorship.

"Today, as I stand here with this esteemed award, I want you to know that it belongs to you as much as it does to me. It’s a testament to the enduring bond we share and to your faith in my abilities.

"As I share this moment with you all, it is a bittersweet feeling. Afzal Sahib's (papa) absence is profoundly felt, and I find myself wishing he were here to witness this milestone with me. His belief in me was my guiding light, and I carry his memory with me as I accept this honor.

"Thank you once again to every one of you for being an integral part of this remarkable journey. Grateful."
