Said a delighted Ayushmann, "This is my first award after VICKY DONOR. It feels great to be acknowledged by Zee TV and Gold Awards for our work. I thank the entire TV fraternity for giving us breaks that helped us get noticed by Bollywood. I also thank my wife, Tiara, who is my biggest critic and was sure that I could never act."
