Actress Sayani Gupta, whose Bollywood debut was Margarita With A Straw, says she is grateful for all the appreciation coming her way
Mumbai: Actress Sayani Gupta, who ventured into Bollywood with the critically acclaimed film Margarita With A Straw, says she is grateful for all the appreciation coming her way.
Sayani earned an honourable mention for the Best Actress award for her short film Leeches at the Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA).
The actress shared the award with her co-star Preeti Golacha.
"I had two films playing at IFFLA this year and both won best films in their category. Parched won Best Film Special Mention Feature and Leeches won Best film Special Mention Short. It's been a fortunate start for me in films and each day I'm only grateful for all the appreciation coming my way," Sayani said in a statement.
"Winning a Best Actress at IFFLA is no short of one of the most flattering moments of my small yet satisfying acting life so far. Here's hoping to many more," she added.
Sayani also said her character Raisa in Leeches is "very close" to her heart.
"I lived in a burqa for 12 days and got to shoot in the most ghetto corners of Hyderabad," she added.
Raisa is the volatile protagonist of Leeches, a film that is ultimately about a sister's love, and her heartbreaking sacrifice, set against the backdrop of temporary marriage in poor Muslim communities in the old city of Hyderabad.
Sayani will next be seen in Maneesh Sharma's Fan opposite Shah Rukh Khan.
