Writer-lyricist and ad guru Prasoon Joshi feels humbled and motivated on being conferred with the Padma Shri.

"When years of hard work get recognised, especially by the government, one feels humbled and motivated. Amongst my other awards, this honour is the most special because it would mean a lot to my parents and elders in the family and make them happy," Mr Joshi, known for his heart-warming lyrics in songs such as Taare Zameen Par's Maa, said in a statement.

"I want to thank our government and the committee who thought my work as a writer in the field of poetry cinema and communication is worthy of this prestigious recognition," he added.

Mr Joshi had given the lyrics for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's anthem for Swachh Bharat Abhiyan last year.
