Here’s how Sanya Malhotra reacted to being featured in the Berlinale Breakouts


The young actress who has earlier impressed the audience with her power-packed performances in films like Dangal, Pataakha, and Badhaai Ho is all set to don an all-new avatar for Ritesh Batra’s upcoming directorial Photograph.

Sanya Malhotra’s film Photograph which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and owing to her outstanding performance in the film the actress was featured in the Berlinale Breakouts by the Hollywood Reporter. Sanya’s initial reaction to making it to that article was not that of exhilaration, rather she was quite unfazed by it.

“I did not know how to react. I was traveling and when I landed in Mumbai I got a WhatsApp message from Radhika. She sent me a cut out of the article. I thought, ‘nice’. I did not know that is a big deal. My mother was so excited about it and others started congratulating me. It was then I realized that is very important.”

After receiving all the reactions Sanya added, “When I am appreciated like this, it obviously feels great. After (List) came out, I am now feeling very stressed about attending the festival.”

Sanya Malhotra who is currently riding high on the success of her latest outing ‘Badhaai Ho’ will mark her first association with Ritesh Batra who is the director of Photograph. With just three films old, Sanya has already made a mark for herself in the industry.
