It feels unbelievable to know that the whole country thought my role in Newton was one of my best and to win the Special Mention Award at the highest film award in India is just exhilarating.

During the announcement, Shekhar Kapur said he insisted to the rest of the jury that Sridevi should not be given the award only because she passed away.
