Actor Ishaan Khattar won the Best Actor award for his debut film Beyond The Clouds at the International Bosphorus Film Festival in Turkey. The 22-year-old actor, who is currently prepping for Dhadak, co-starring Janhvi Kapoor, dedicated the award to his mother actress Neelima Azeem and Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi. "This is an absolute honour. My mother is here in the audience - Everything I earn from my work will always, first and foremost, be dedicated to you. Thank you for giving me the gift of life and art. Firstly (for this piece of work) the award goes out to Majid Majidi - the masterful, wonderful, absolute legend of a man, who trusted me and gave me this film as my first leading performance," Ishaan said after receiving the award, reports news agency IANS.

Ishaan, who is Shahid Kapoor's step-brother, further thanked the cast and crew of Beyond The Clouds and also his film's co-star Malavika Mohanan.

Filmmaker Karan Johar, who is producing Ishaan's next film Dhadak (which is Sridevi's daughter Janhvi Kapoor's debut film), also congratulated the team of Beyond The Clouds and tweeted: "Huge congratulations to Ishaan on his very first Best Actor award! So proud of you!!! And many more to come."
 

Beyond The Clouds was the opening movie at the 48th International Film Festival of India (IFFI), which was held in Goa. The film narrates a heart-warming tale of a brother and sister and how they find happiness in separation and bad times.

Ishaan has also assisted director Abhishek Chaubey in Shahid Kapoor's critically acclaimed drug drama Udta Punjab.

Beyond The Clouds is scheduled for early 2018 while Ishaan's Dhadak is currently scheduled to release on July 6, 2018.
