Celina Jaitly Haag wins her first Filmfare Award last night at the Filmfare Middle East Awards night in Dubai. The Best Performance In Short Film award goes to her for Ram Kamal Mukherjee’s ‘Seasons Greeting’ (2019).
Celina talks about her incredible journey and hard work to reach this point, she says, “It took 18 years as an actor, an 8 year break from cinema, two twin pregnancies and overcoming the loss of my parents and son to win this. Thank you Filmfare, for giving this award to genuine hard work. I couldn’t make it for the awards but this award certainly made it to my heart and soul.”
She dedicated it to her late parents whom she lost just before the film shoot and her husband Peter Haag and also director Ram Kamal Mukherjee, who believed in her from the beginning and was of great support through the difficult moments of shooting while suffering from depression.
