A couple of months ago, when the awards were announced, Ajay had told a section of the media: “I feel deeply humbled yet elated to receive such honour from my own country. This announcement today makes it special for me when I'm filming abroad for my new film Shivaay. I'd like to acknowledge that Padma Samman puts an extra responsibility on me and I promise to serve my country for as long as I can.”
