Meghnad loved Nandana's performance too. The friend continued saying, "He noticed Nandana's performance very minutely and complimented her on the finer nuances and expressions that she gave in the film. Meghnad's detailed remarks took Nandana by surprise. She was truly touched."
The friend revealed that the story of Rang Rasiya was so moving that the audience was in tears by the end of it. "Tears had welled up in the audience's eyes. Nandana was overwhelmed by the response. She was a little embarrassed too because she is not used to the attention." The friend added, "Rang Rasiya also had a screening at Galle, Sri Lanka. Nandana got a standing ovation. The media asked her the most incredible questions and it was also a time where she received the most hugs from strangers than she had got from friends and colleagues."
