Here is something for one of India’s greatest actesses to ‘Crowe’ about. Shabana Azmi has been bonding bigtimewith Hollywood icon Russel Crowe who heads the jury of the Best Asian Film category at the Australian Academy Of Cinema &Television Arts Awards to be held at Sydney on 6 December.
While Crowe heads the jury Shabana Azmi is one of the jury members.
Apparently the two have hit it off famously.
Says Shabana, “Russell and I are in discussion over the nominees and now that the 9 Asian films have been nominated for the Best Asian Film category we are in the final stages of our jury discussions.”
There are are two Hindi films Nitesh Tiwari’s Dangal and Annirudh Roychowdhury’s Pink in reckoning.The third Indian film in the nominations is the Marathi film Kaasav Turtle.
