The actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who played the character of Sarabjit Singh’s sister Dalbir Kaur, has won the Best Actress award at the International Film Festival and Awards of Australia (IFFAA).
The Film, directed by Omung Kumar was based on Sarabjit Singh, an Indian farmer who was convicted of terrorism and spying in Pakistan and was sentenced to death. He was attacked by inmates at a prison in Lahore in April 2013 and died a few days later.
Sarbjit, which marked Jackky Bhagnani’s debut as a producer, was also shortlisted as one of the 336 feature films, which were eligible for Best Picture in 2016 at the 89th Academy Awards. However, it could not make it to the final lists of the awards.
