Talented actress Lilette Dubey, who walked away with the best actress award for her performance in ‘Bow Barracks Forever’ at the Madrid International Film Festival, is delighted by the turn of events. This festival is known for awarding only the best of the very best in world cinema. It is said that Lilette is very happy at this turn of events. In the movie “Bow Barracks Forever”, she had played the role of a hyper-strung Anglo-Indian woman. Bow Barracks Forever deals with the much neglected and forgotten anglo-Indian community living in Kolkata.
Her performance in the movie has been compared with Jennifer Kapoor’s performance in “36 Chowringhee Lane” which was directed by Aparna Sen. Lilette was nominated along with Joan Allen who is also the actress’s favorite actress. Since she loves Spanish cinema, she is very much glad as the award has come from Spain. She was found saying that since she has reached a stage and age where looks are not important anymore, now she just needs to search for the right character to essay the role. Do you remember Ms. Bharucha in My Name Is Anthony Gonsalves, the perfectionist film maker. You probably remember her in Jubaida. She also acted in Bollywood Beats by director Mehul Shah. The other movies of her in hand include Ravi Chopra’s ‘Banda Yeh Bindaas Hai’ where she will be playing Tabu’s mother.
