Kriti Sanon cannot contain her happiness as she has just won the highly coveted Best Actress Award for her spectacular performance in the Netflix original Mimi at the 69th National Film Awards. The actress, who also took home the Filmfare Award last year,  said in a statement “I am too excited, almost emotional. I cannot believe this has happened. It is a big moment for me and my entire family. Mimi has been a very very special film and to get the most prestigious award, the National Award for it, I just cannot thank the Jury enough for actually believing that my performance deserved this award.”

Mimi actor Kriti Sanon also took this opportunity to thank her producer Dinesh Vijan and Mimi director Laxman Utekar for almost having faith in her And her work. She said “I am too too overwhelmed. I just want to thank Dinesh Vijan, who has always believed in me and my potential and for giving me a film as special as Mimi, which I will treasure all my life. Also, my director Lamxam Utekar Sir, who I remember while shooting the film, used to tell me, dekhna aapko is film ke liye National Award milega (you will get a National Award for your performance in Mimi) and I used to not believe it because I thought it was too big a dream but he did. He has held my hand throughout this film.”

The Adipurush actress concluded with these words, “Everyone in my family is very excited, very emotional. There is a lot of gratitude in my heart at this moment.”

On being asked about her plans to celebrate the massive feat, Kriti simply said, she wants to be surrounded by people she loves and who love her. “I am not sure how I am going to celebrate it. I just wanna be surrounded by people who love me and who I love a lot. Just be in my pyjamas at home and just have a good time and just sink in this moment and actually really really treasure it,” Kriti said. 

Kriti Sanon also treated her social media family to a heartfelt post after the big win. In her post, she dedicated her win to her parents and sister Nupur. Kriti Sanon, who shared her Best Actress Award with Alia Bhatt, ended her post by congratulating the Gangubai Kathiawadi actress while expressing her excitement at sharing her award with someone whose work she has “always admired.”
