"Having said that, for me the love we get from the audience and the media is the biggest award that there is."
Speaking about the Power Award, Rakeysh said, "This is their first year. I don't really understand power but I believe that power is what comes from mind and thought. But it feels great to be appreciated especially because the awardees were chosen by film journalists."
On his upcoming project Fanney Khan, the director said: "It's a movie I am producing. Divya Dutta is also a part of 'Fanney', and it's always a pleasure working with her."
The movie is directed by debutant director Atul Manjrekar and it is his dream and his vision, said Rakeysh, "I am supporting it."
"We have a great cast and it is a dream film for me. The music is by Amit Trivedi and Irshad Kamil and I am absolutely dawning a producer's hat with such a wonderful team," he said.
Anil, who had earlier featured with Aishwarya in Taal, will appear together on screen after 17 long years.
Produced by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, KriArj Entertainment and T-Series Fanney Khan is the official remake of Oscar nominated Dutch film from 2000 Everybody's Famous!.
It is scheduled for a worldwide release in April 2018.
