About her own film ‘Thalaivii’ which did not receive any awards, she said, “All of you who are disappointed that my film Thalaivii didn’t win any… please know I am eternally grateful for whatever Krishna gave and didn’t give me and all of you who really love and appreciate me must appreciate my perspective as well … Art is subjective and I truly believe that the jury did their best …. I wish everyone the best Hare Krishna C2 V,” she added.
