Expressing his happiness over the win, Siddharth Malhotra says, “Kaafir is a very special story, not just because of the script and the actors but because of the message it delivers and the reality it showcases. It upholds that humanity is the biggest religion and we must be true followers. Receiving these awards for the show has reinforced my belief in the audiences and the content industry yet again. I am reassured that as long as one is being driven by good scripts, appreciation will follow.”

Kaafir is not the first project which showed the creative genius of producer Siddharth Malhotra. He has created a lot of path-breaking content in the past, including for films as well as television. He is known for producing the much-loved medical drama Sanjivani at a time when these genres were not really unexplored and saas-bahu sagas were ruling the roost.

Malhotra’s last directorial venture Hichki (2018) is yet another example of his prowess. Starring Rani Mukerji in the lead role, the movie turned out to be a major commercial success at the box-office and won several awards.
