It was a big evening on November 30 when the biggest stars took over the celebrations at the Galatta Nakshatra Awards 2023. Among the leading names to have graced the star-studded gala event was youth sensation and actor Dhruv Vikram, who was honored with the 'Heartthrob of Tamil Cinema' award. Receiving the 'Heartthrob of Tamil Cinema' award at the Galatta Nakshatra Awards 2023 from blockbuster Tamil filmmaker Atlee, Dhruv expressed his gratitude to fans and started his speech by saying, "I want to thank you all for your support and your love as it motivates me. And, Galatta, I didn't expect such an award. It's very sweet. Thank you. I would also like to thank Atlee sir at this time because he's become a director who made the entire world look at us. And, to receive this award from him, is a motivation for an actor like me. This also reminds me that I need to work a lot more and I feel that you all must feel proud about me when you think about me. I'm ready to do anything to deserve this type of love. It's a big honor being here. Kundavai (Trisha Krishnan) is also here. I'm a big fan." 

Dhruv Vikram also opened up about his upcoming project saying, "I'm doing a film next with Mari Selvaraj sir. I have been practicing Kabbadi for the last six months. It's a biopic based on a kabbadi player named Manathi Ganesan. I've been preparing for that and the film be released soon. I hope you all like it." Revealing that his father 'Chiyaan' Vikram was the one who told him that he was going to receive 'Heartthrob of Tamil Cinema' award, Dhruv stated, "I didn't expect to be chosen for this honor. I don't know whether I'm a heart-throb, but I wish to steal the hearts of the fans and the technicians who are here now. I wish to work even more." 

With the Galatta Wonder Women Awards 2023 also taking place on the same evening at the Galatta Nakshatra Awards stage, Dhruv Vikram spoke about his mother Shailaja Balakrishnan, and his sister Akshita. He said, "Many people might think that we're a film family, but right from my childhood days, my mother, my sister, and myself have maintained a distance from the industry. I'm experiencing all this after coming to cinema. They are still enjoying it all from a distance. So, without their support, it wouldn't be possible for me to come here. I'm sure every man has women like them to motivate them. I want to thank my father and my mother for creating my heart." 

The evening also had a special surprise in store for Dhruv Vikram as a photo frame featuring a painting of himself alongside his father Vikram was presented as a token of love and appreciation. The 'Heartthrob of Tamil Cinema' award winner also treated the fans to a special performance by singing the smash hit song 'Kanave Kanave' from his father's film, David (2013). Talking about his beloved father Vikram, Dhruv said, "He's the reason why I'm standing here. I'll need to do more work to carry forward the legacy of his name and I hope to one day make it as big as him." Upon being shown a meme in which he appears to be collaborating in the future with 'Thalapathy' Vijay's son Jason Sanjay directing their film, with Aditi Shankar playing the female lead, and Anirudh Ravichander composing the music, the Mahaan star said, "They're all family friends and I've known them since childhood. When we recently met, we didn't discuss cinema. But, if an opportunity like this comes my way, it will be nice and interesting."
