The award was presented to director Sabbir Khan at a function in Mumbai earlier this week. Elated at bagging this honour, Sabbir said, "I am very happy Kambakkht Ishq is continuing to bag laurels even months after its release, that the effort put in to exploit a location authentically and grandiosely has been appreciated and awarded. It was indeed an overwhelming experience collecting this award in front of many industry stalwarts."
Kambakkht Ishq was among the few Bollywood films which was majorly shot at some prominent locations around LA and in Italy. The makers even shot at the world famous Kodak Theatre- home to the Academy awards each year.
