Sanya Malhotra’s stellar performance in Mrs earned her Best Actress award at the New York Indian Film Festival 2024.

Taking to its official Instagram handle, director Arati Kadav shared the news and wrote, “Thrilled beyond words. The Best Actress! @sanyamalhotra_ @nyindianfilmfest.”

Re-sharing Arati’s post on her Instagram stories, Sanya wrote, “Yay! Thank you, @nyindianfilmfest I can’t wait for everyone to watch Mrs.”

The film, which is a remake of the Malayalam film The Great Indian Kitchen, revolves around Sanya’s character who navigates the challenges and expectations imposed by society and her marital life.

Ever since the film has been showcased at various film festivals, it is Sanya Malhotra who has been receiving accolades from the audience, her fans, and critics alike.

Earlier, Sanya shared her excitement when she got nominated for the award.

She said in a statement, “It is a proud moment for me that Mrs has been chosen as the closing film for NYIFF. Playing Richa, a character grappling with the delicate balance between tradition and ambition, was an immense honour and responsibility, given that it embodies the struggles of so many Indian women. Our endeavour to breathe life into this story has been incredibly rewarding and I am eagerly awaiting to share it with the world.”

Apart from this film, Sanya has several interesting projects in her kitty. She will be seen in Sunny Sanskari Ki Tulsi Kumari.

Written and directed by Shashank Khaitan, the film is produced by Karan Johar under his company Dharma Productions.
