Anupam is proud he was chosen for an award the same year as Kingsley, who has so far dedicated over four decades to showbiz.

"It is also an honour to be given this award the same year as Sir Ben Kingsley. Makes me feel very proud," said Anupam.

English playwright, screenwriter and filmmaker, novelist and short story writer Hanif Kureishi CBE won in the art category and British actress Nina Wadia received an award in the television category.
