On winning the prestigious titled, Sidharth Shukla in an earlier interview said, "It was a very proud feeling especially because I was representing my country there. I also say that I was representing my country there as everybody in that foreign country addressed me as the Indian boy. This clearly stated I was not Siddharth Shukla but I was an Indian in a foreign country. That moment was indeed a very special moment of my life as I got to represent my country in a small way through this and eventually take the tag back home. Back home, I got a warm welcome from one and all. Phone calls kept coming in and so did offers. In the middle of modeling, acting happened. I am not a trained actor but am of the view that one learns more practically and that’s exactly how I have learnt".
