The 27-year-old actor said he feels great to be representing India on an international platform.

“I am humbled to have been nominated. It’s a category of newcomer where in there are both male and female actors. And I’m the only Indian amongst the other who are from Japan, Taiwan etc…,” Vicky said in a statement.

“It’s a great feeling to be representing the country on a global platform. It’s still unbelievable for me that so many good things are happening I feel fabulous at this moment,” he added.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Bajirao Masatni”, starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra, has bagged five nominations at the awards, including best film.

The movie comes second in the nominations race after the Hou Hsiao-Hsiens kung fu masterpiece “The Assassin”, which has topped the list with nine nods, including best film, best director, best cinematography, and best actress for Shu Qi.

36 films from nine Asian countries are competing for the top honours this year and the winners will be felicitated at a star-studded ceremony in Macau on March 17.
