She has bagged the award for the Marathi version of the movie, which happens to be her debut Marathi film in her career. However, this is not the first time when she has bagged this award. The last time she got this award was for the film Vivah in 2007.

Talking about this achievement, the actress said that since Dadasaheb Phalke is considered to be the Indian cinema father and also happened to be a Marathi and to get this award for her debut Marathi film is both amazing and symbolic.

She concluded saying that she would take time in deciding the right kind of movie for her as she is looking for something different that should be exciting for her. She also said that since the cinema is changing at a faster pace, the methods of acting and other things are also changing. She has to groom according to that. The said award would be given to her on an award ceremony to be held on 20th April 2019.
