Sunayana spoke to mid-day.com after her win

What was your reaction after winning the style icon award?

I was ecstatic when my name was announced for the style icon award and to be associated with such an award, carries a lot of prestige and responsibilities. With adulation comes lot of responsibility. It adds certain pressures on you to keep maintaining that and give people what they expect out of you. I must have done something right for me to get the award and yes lots of gratitude, lots of happiness. I’ve been a very simple girl and a geek in school. I think my confidence and self-belief  has got me here and that`s what I keep telling everyone. No matter where you come from, who you are, self-belief will always take you where you want to be. I was super excited and you usually only see others getting awards like these but to get Dadasaheb Phalke award has lot of respect associated with name itself so it couldn`t get better than this.

Did you expect that you will be winning amongst the other contemporaries?

We don`t work for awards but eventually when you get it we can call it a bonus. Nowadays competition is tough, there are so many others who are doing fabulously well and are so experimental with their looks. Like I said I must have done something right .

What do you love about your show  Tarak Mehta Ka Oolta Chasma?

I am and I will always be grateful and happy to be in a show like this one, it is legendary. The entire team is so fabulous and I have learnt a lot of things from them. To be around for so long and still win people`s heart and try to bring smile on people`s faces is amazing. I want to be an entertainer till the last day.
