Actress #KirtiKulhari, who was honoured for her performance in the 2016 film #Pink at the #DadasahebPhalkeExcellenceAwards2017, says she is proud and grateful to be a part of the movie.
"I am grateful to the audiences who have appreciated 'Pink' and supported it wholeheartedly. I believe that the theme of ‘Pink' has a universal appeal. It was and always will be a very important and relevant film," Kirti said in a statement.
"And the fact that such films are doing well commercially and critically, gives me as an actor, immense satisfaction and happiness.
"I am thankful to the Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Awards team for recognising and appreciating the actor in me. Will always be extremely grateful and proud that I got to be a part of a phenomenon called ‘Pink'," added Kirti, who played the role of Falak Ali in the Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury directorial.
