While the actress has been National Award recipient for her work on the celluloid, Padma Shri Award acknowledged her for being an ideal citizen. She said in the video, “I am grateful. When I had started my career at a young age, it took me 8-10 years to taste success. But when I finally became successful, I did not enjoy that but launched myself into other issues. I shunned fairness products, items numbers, working in movies with popular male leads and with production houses. I made more enemies than I made money.”

Speaking about how the actress on several occasions was slapped with legal cases for expressing her opinions on political and social issues, she said, “People often ask me what do I get by doing all this? Why do I do all this? This is not your job. So this award is my answer to them. Padma Shri ke roop mein jo mujhe sammaan mila hai ye bahut logon ke mooh band karega (This Padma Shri will silence a lot of people).”
