South Indian Actor Dhanush wins Best Actor Award at the BRICS Film Festival
Mumbai: South Indian film Actor Dhanush’s stellar performance in director Vetrimaran’s Tamil film ‘Asuran’ leads him the Best Actor Award at the BRICS Film Festival, which was held alongside the 52nd edition of the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) that came to a close here on Sunday.
Interestingly, Dhanush had also won a National Award for the same film earlier this year. While Dhanush was adjudged the best actor, Lara Boldorini was awarded the Best Actor (female) at the festival for her performance in the Brazilian film ‘On Wheels’.
The Best Film Award was shared by two films – South African film ‘Barakat’ and the Russian film ‘The Sun Above Me Never Sets’. While ‘Barakat’ has been directed by Amy Jephta, the Russian film has been directed by Lyubov Borisova.
Chinese Director Yan Han was awarded the Special Mention Award for his film ‘A Little Red Flower’ at the festival.
