She says she wasn’t expecting much while watching the live telecast of the award show online. She confesses, “Awards are awards, and sometimes you get it, sometimes you don’t, I don’t pin my hopes too much on it. The moment the award was announced, I saw Richie’s (Mehta, director) face, and he’s otherwise such an even tempered person! I was happy for him, he dealt with the narrative and visualisation of it with such sensitivity.”
