Nasser Latif was awarded Honourable Jury Mention - Actor Award at the 8th Dada Saheb Phalke Film Festival 2018 for his performance as a retired schoolmaster in Ashiq Vanna Divasam. Talking about the award Nasser said, "Out of the nearly 200 films that are produced, only around 20 can be called good. But these 20 never get the viewership nor promotion. The awards that Ashiq Vanna Divasam won in Hyderabad and Delhi show that it is a movie that has an essence. My role in Ashiq Vanna Divasam is a dream come true for me". The movie centres the relationship between a father-in-law (Nasser) and his daughter-in-law (Priyamani).
