Divya Dutta bags Best Actor award at Dallas film fest

Divya Dutta is one of those gifted actors in the film industry, who perfectly understands the pitch of her characters and fittingly executes them as per the tone of the film.

She holds her characters by their nerves to deliver knockout performances one after the other. Her works in films like ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, ‘Veer-Zaara’ and ‘Badlapur’ among many others are a longstanding testimony to this fact.

The actress was recently feted with the Best Actor award for her short film ‘Sheer Qorma’ at DFW South Asian Film Festival in Dallas, US. The film has been traveling to film festivals across the globe for quite some time and has been winning accolades on the international canvas.

Helmed by Faraz Ansari, ‘Sheer Qorma’ is one of the few films that represents the LGBTQA+ community with a heartwarming story at its core. The film also stars veteran actress Shabana Azmi and Swara Bhasker.

An extremely elated Divya spoke about attending the event, “I am very excited to be here in Dallas physically and receive the award. Most of the film festival participation for ‘Sheer Qorma’ so far, happened virtually. This time Faraz (the film’s director) took special permission and we could travel.”

The actress is gearing up for the release of her film ‘Dhaakad’ where she’ll be seen sharing screen space with Kangana Ranaut and Arjun Rampal.
