Critics choose Anshuman Jha for best actor award at Boston film festival
“Anshuman Jha Wins ‘Best Actor – Critics Award’ for his portrayal of the serial killer ‘Blademan’ in the film Midnight-Delhi at IIFFB, Boston 2021“. The actor defines film as ‘As dark & as fun as it can get’.
Hailed as India’s answer to Tarantino by the Jury in Singapore where the film won ‘Best Editor’, the film has now won ‘Best Actor-Critics Award’ at IIFFB Boston for Jha’s portrayal of an innocent serial Killer in the streets of Delhi.
Jha played a gay man in his last release Hum Bhi Akele, Tum Bhi Akele and has already begun training for his next action film Lakadbaggha which goes on floor this December. And these diverse characters are a fruition of the artistic spark which we saw since in his memorable debut in LSD a decade ago.
“As an artist Anshuman Jha is very unique. He is dancing to a rare tune. I am so glad he agreed to be a part of my debut film and has given such nuance to this character’ says Rakesh Rawat, Director of Midnight-Delhi.
