The Legend replayed for the award as “Never forget to be thankful to almighty, your parents, your family, your friends, the people you work with, the people who work with you and everyone who has been a part of your journey because on your own you are not unique. You are rather alone! So gratitude should be an attitude. Also never try to be anyone else because it takes away the two greatest gifts from you – the ability to fail and the ability to accept ‘I don’t know’. And lastly, don’t forget to pray.
