and Vidya Balan in leads.
Arundhati Nag (Paa), Divya Dutt (Delhi 6),
Gauhar Khan (Rocket Singh), Neha Dhupia (Raat Gayi
Baat Gayi) and Shahana Goswami (Firaaq) were
nominated for the category of Best Supporting Actress. Finally,
Arundhati got selected for the honour for her excellent performance
as Bum in Paa. After receiving the award, Arundathi said,
"This is my first film award function because I'm basically from
theatre industry. I thank Mr. Balki, Amitabhji and all the team
members of Paa for getting me this honour.
The senior Kannada theatre artiste has already got rave reviews
from critics for her performance in the movie Paa. Now the
recognition as the Best Supporting Actress is a great honour to
Arundhati Nag. However, she has played Vidya Balan"s mother and
grandmom of Auro"s (Amitabh Bachchan) in the film. Her confident
act as granny Bum is very heart-touching and the scenes between the
'nani-pota' are very real.
Hats off to Arundhati madam for making Kannadigas proud!
