Sippy made his debut in Hindi films at the age of 9, playing Achala Sachdev's son in Shahenshah. He is best known for directing, arguably the best Hindi film of all time, Sholay.

Sippy was quoted saying, "The International Indian Film Academy is a massive pioneering effort to expand the reach of Indian Cinema, taking it beyond Indian shores. To be recognized on an international platform is an honour. I would like to thank IIFA for giving me this wonderful mark of appreciation. I am truly honoured that my work has been recognized."

The acclaimed dancer and actress has been the recipient of the Padma Vibhusan and had a fruitful career in theatre, film and dance. She will receive the special award, 'Contribution to 100 years of Indian Cinema'.
