Mumbai: Kriti Sanon recieves the ‘Best Actress’ award for ‘Mimi’, says, “If given a chance to re-live and re-shoot a film, I will surely choose Mimi”
Kriti Sanon received the Best Actress (Popular Choice) award at the recent award show for her stellar performance in the film, ‘Mimi’. “If given a chance to re-live any one of my films, I will take Mimi’s name,” the actress said as she accepted the award.
Kriti Sanon competed against Alia Bhatt who was nominated for Gangubai Kathiawadi, Tabu for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Kiara Advani who got nominated for JugJugg Jeeyo and Shershaah, Triptii Dimri for Qala and Deepika Padukone for Gehraiyaan. Kriti received the award after several weeks of voting from the audience.
The actress delivered a heartwarming acceptance speech after receiving the award from acting stalwart Anupam Kher. She said, “Thank you so much Sir, it is such an honour to receive the award from you. I kind of almost got confused because I thought Mimi’s year is gone. But this award is being given for 2 years, so it is even more special. With such amazing contemporaries and performances, I suddenly was sitting and feeling less deserving of it.”
She further added, “Mimi has been a very special film. If given a chance to re-live and re-shoot a film, I will surely choose Mimi. I’m not too sure about the 15 kgs (of weight gain), but the rest of it is for sure. I have to thank Dinesh Vijan, Maddock Films and Laxman Utekar Sir, for simply believing in me and that I can pull this off. For truly believing in my talent from the beginning. When you enter the industry with big dream, you just need a few people who believe in you and your talent and just give you that opportunity.”
The actress too shared the video of her recieving the awards on her social media stories.
