She also took to her social media to share the win with fans and friends. In one of the posts, Bhumi went on to say she was trembling on stage and her speech, “didn’t turn out the way it sounded in my head.. Suddenly I felt like the room was boiling hot and I had dinosaurs in my stomach. But even though I was a nervous wreck I connected with each and every person in that room…that’s the beauty of cinema is beyond borders, language, ethnicities, caste, religion, or any societal bias. This year BIFF celebrated ending any discrimination. This was such an enriching experience, to be able to share stage and life with such brilliant and talented names globally.”
