She wrote in Hindi, "Bada kadak launda hai, vo chup chup ke nahi sabke saamne zor zor rota hai vo, bada kadak launda hai, baap ke yaadon ko sametta hai naazuk ungliyon se bikherata hai unhen khushboo ki tarah... (He is a very strong man. He cries in front of everyone, not secretly. He is a very strong man. He gathers the memories of his father with delicate fingers, spreads them like a fragrance)."

Sutapa didn't accompany him to the award show but she had helped Babil with his outfit for the event. During their conversation, Sutapa asserted that she wanted to attend the event but wouldn't accompany him. After Babil asked her the reason, she said, "No, I can't face people." Babil gave her a hug and shared the video writing, "Mamma dressing me up."
