While presenting the award to Ranbir, Jeetendra mentioned how he has been wondering what to say in his speech, and his wife Shobha, daughter Ektaa and son Tusshar helped him write it. However, he soonrealised that the speech was not needed. 

The veteran actor said, “You’re giving this award to Ranbir who is my very dear friend” Rishi Kapoor’s son. So, I’ve been preparing since yesterday what I should be saying here. My wife, my daughter, and my son were guiding me. Anyway, I would like to say mujhe khushi hai ke mere jigri yaar, mere lakhte jigar, mera sab kuch, Rishi Kapoor ke bete ko yeh award mila hai. Aur aaj woh jahan pahuncha hai woh uski mehnat hai (l am very happy that this award is going to my dearest friend Rishi’s son. Today Ranbir has reached this stage because of his own hard work).”
