Bhumi Pednekar wins global honour; ‘Face of Asia’ award – But at the same time flew to Busan to attend Busan Film Festival where her other film Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitaare is competing.
Bhumi Pednekar has stood out as one of the most exciting young actors of Bollywood since her debut Dum Laga Ke Haisha. Known for her keenness to experiment on screen she will soon turn into an aged sharp shooter from rural Haryana in Saandh Ki Aankh for her next release.
But at the same time flew to Busan to attend Busan Film Festival where her other film Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitaare is competing. Suprisingly at the festival Bhumi won the ‘Face of Asia’ award.
Over 150 filmmakers and celebrities attended this event. Accepting the award Bhumi said, “I am humbled and very touched that my work has resonated with audiences and critics in Busan. It’s my first international win so I am very proud of it. I have aspired to act in films that have something important to say and have worked sincerely to deliver convincing performances. I hope to be part of brilliant cinema that will be liked and remembered fondly in future. I would want to thank my entire cast, my director Alankrita Shrivastava and my producers Ekta Kapoor and Ruchikaa Kapoor for this great opportunity.”
