Khushali Kumar has won the Critic’s Choice Award for her striking performance in the short film, Jeena Mushkil Hai Yaar, at the Druk International film Festival. The full list of selected projects of DIFF’s October’19 seasons was published on the official website last November.
Khushali delivered the winning performance playing the role of a Hindi news anchor, who is accused of sensationalising the news of a dying superstar. She is forced to go to a jungle, where she can save either her career or the tribal who was fighting an MNC to save the jungle.
Having won this award, her performance has been automatically nominated for the prestigious Golden Dragon Awards®. The results for the same will be published in March 2020.
