Another wish come true! When someone aspires to be an actor, receiving awards is naturally a part of that dream. But even in those private dreamy moments, I didn’t imagine myself taking home an international award! Salim Ahmad’s ‘And The Oskar Goes To’ wins multiple awards at the Alberta Film Festival 2019 – Canada, honouring me with the Best Actor title. This goes beyond imaginations! Truly honoured and thankful. Can’t thank Salimkka enough for entrusting me with this role – it has realised much more than a dream for me. The film has also won the Best Film, Best Director and Best Supporting Actress awards. Congrats to all the winners and everyone who was part of the film. Feeling really proud of Malayalam cinema going places and to be a part of it.
