Speaking exclusively to OTTplay, actor-producer Amit Sarin said, “This is a historic and proud moment for all Indians. I believe it’s the first time ever that an Indian production has won the best film (documentary / short film) category. Kartiki is so grounded and not swayed with the spotlight and accolades she's getting. She truly deserves every bit of it, as her labour of love and perseverance for 5 years with this film has earned her this honour. Guneet and her team is a pillar of support to take Elephant Whispers to its epitome”.
Having worked in Hollywood himself, Amit felt that making a name for one’s work amid the numerous projects here is not easy. “Ohh yes! It’s more than special! Hollywood is the Mecca of the entertainment industry. And, here, I would like to add that, through my own working experience there (in Hollywood), I know that it’s so tough breaking in, to leave a mark and going all the way to get the biggest award in the entertainment world, Oscars! It is THE most prestigious award for artistic and technical merit for the global film industry with one of the highest viewership”.
When asked about the cult song ‘Naatu Naatu’ from the superh it film ‘RRR’ which also fetched the much-coveted Oscar this year, Amit said, “Of course… ‘Naatu Naatu’ from ‘RRR’ became a cult hit and it had all the makings of becoming a global chartbuster and rightfully so. The catchy tempo and choreography has made people dance to it all over the world.”
