 On having won the Performance in a Leading Role (Female), Deepika Padukone said, "2013 was an amazing year for me. I left home with a suitcase and a dream and I thank my parents for allowing me to follow my dream.”

“This is a very special moment as it is the first time I’m receiving an award for the film in the presence of Milkha Singh. He shared a lot of amazing stories with me and was the wind beneath my wings. I am very honoured today,” said Farhan on winning the award.

John Travolta was felicitated with an award for Outstanding Contribution to International Cinema. He accepted the award saying, “I am honoured and humbled to be put in this category. I believe that as human beings we are alike and this is a medium to celebrate our similarities. A heartfelt thank you to IIFA and the Indian film community.”
