Alia Bhatt, who received the Youth Icon of the Year award from her father Mahesh Bhatt at the Vogue Women of the Year ceremony in Mumbai on Saturday, said he was best suited for the title.

On receiving the award, the Student Of The Year actor said, "This is the first time my father is presenting an award to me. What's most special tonight is the fact that my father is standing right next to me, way past his bedtime. Let me tell you that he sleeps at 9 pm and wakes up at 5 am and goes and does Pilates and cardio.

"I don't think that I'm the Youth Icon of the Year. My father is the Youth Icon of the Year."

Alia will soon be directed by her father for the first time in Sadak 2, which also features her half-sister Pooja Bhatt. And she is looking forward to the experience.

"Genuinely, I can't wait to be directed by you and can't wait to be on the set with you papa, because the kind of energy that you have, I have to calm you down sometimes. So, if there is any quality within me which is an icon like, it's all thanks to my father, my mother and my other father, Karan," said Alia.

Hosted by filmmaker Karan Johar, the star-studded event felicitated 20 influential names across various fields, including law, entertainment, fashion, journalism, sports, women's empowerment and philanthropy, for their efforts.

The Mann Deshi Foundation founder Chetna Gala Sinha, who has empowered rural women through micro-finance, was felicitated with the Vogue Social Entrepreneur of the Year title while Vinita Gupta, CEO of pharmaceutical major Lupin, was felicitated as the Vogue and IBM Businesswoman of The Year. News anchor Faye D'Souza was adjudged the Opinion Maker of the Year, while activist-lawyer Deepika Singh Rajawat was declared Vogue Crusader of the Year.

From entertainment, Kareena Kapoor Khan bagged the Vogue and IWC Schaffhausen Style Icon of the Year award, Radhika Apte was the Vogue Trends Disruptor of the Year (Female) while Vicky Kaushal was awarded the Vogue X Trends Disruptor of the Year (Male).

Meghna Gulzar, who directed Raazi, won Filmmaker of the Year, and Ayushmann Khurrana received the Vogue Man of the Moment award.

Athlete Hima Das and wrestler Vinesh Phogat were adjudged Vogue Sportswomen of the Year.

From fashion, Ritu Kumar was honoured with the Vogue and Gemfields Lifetime Achievement Award while Anamika Khanna bagged the title of Vogue Designer of the Year award. The artistic director of Dior, Maria Grazia Chiuri, was awarded the title of Global Icon of the Year.
