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.
