It was a wonderful evening.
The function was nostalgic.Sibi Malayil(Jury chairman)explained why script of passenger was chosen for the puraskaram to the audience and media.I was pleasantly surprised when he said one reason was that Lohithadas himself liked the script and the movie.He had told many close friends regarding it while it was released!!Gave me goosebumps!
Mammukka after giving away the puraskaram said about his interactions with me on passenger.Again a great surprise that he remembered each and every meeting with me and the conversations we had on passenger.Thats what legends are made maybe!
One another happiest part was that my family was present for the function.This was the first award function they were attending.Thats one community one forgets easily when there is success and remembers when there is failure.When someone sets out on an impossible dream it is always his family who suffers the most through those years,which is always unseen.Was really happy that they were present and were acknowledged.
Met lohi sirs son Harikrishnan at the party that followed.He said passenger was a hot discussion topic in their dinner table during his last days.I am sure we are going to see him active in the industry soon!
The puraskaram looked huge!And it is going to remain the biggest in my heart for ever.
