An excited Kalki posted this new on a microblogging site writing, “Yay!!! 'The Best Actress went to Kalki Koechlin for her role in “Margarita, with a Straw” (India).' Black Nights Film Festival Tallinn.”

Says Shonali “I'm absolutely thrilled with this prestigious international award for my Laila. It's wonderful to receive international recognition for the hard work and commitment that Kalki and I put in to create this character. She deserves it totally. It's a world class performance. In fact the jury refused to believe she was able bodied. Bina Paul Venugopal (in attendance as NETPAC Jury at the festival) had to convince them otherwise! Many thanks to my sister Malini who so generously gave herself to Kalki - to understand and portray a vibrant woman with cerebral palsy so brilliantly and honestly”

MARGARITA, WITH A STRAW has been premiered at many film festivals including the Toronto International Film Festival and it has also won accolades.

Directed by Shonali Bose and produced by Sonali & Nilesh Maniyar, MARGARITA, WITH A STRAW tells the story of a young woman living with cerebral palsy and her struggle with the normal activities in her life.

MARGARITA, WITH A STRAW is yet to hit the screens in India
