Earlier this year, Adarsh Gourav surprised everyone with his exceptional performance in The White Tiger which released on Netflix. Last night when the British Academy Of Film And Television Arts (BAFTA) announced its Best Actor in a Leading Role nominations, Adarsh was in for a huge surprise. The actor has been nominated for his role in The White Tiger and this is a huge accomplishment and top news for the actor and the team.
Adarsh Gourav speaks about his excitement and says, “This is unbelievable. It is surreal… I was at the gym. I just found out about the nomination.” The actor further explains his surreal moment and what’s the feeling like, “I saw my phone and there were a lot of messages on ‘The White Tiger’ WhatsApp group and Pooja Gupte, the DOP called me. This is so unexpected and overwhelming.” Boy, that is surely amazing and a great achievement to be nominated at the BAFTA. Adarsh is nominated alongside Riz Ahmed (Sound Of Metal), late Chadwick Boseman (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom), Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round), Anthony Hopkins (The Father) and Tahar Rahim (The Mauritanian).
