Anasuya Sengupta on winning at Cannes 2024: “I shakily walked to the stage”

Anasuya Sengupta has made history as the first Indian actor to win the Best Actress award at the Cannes Film Festival. She was honored in the Un Certain Regard segment for her outstanding portrayal of Renuka in the film ‘The Shameless’, a project penned and directed by Bulgarian filmmaker Constantin Bojanov.

Reflecting on her triumphant moment, Anasuya shared her emotions with the Hindustan Times. “I couldn’t believe it was happening! But as I shakily walked to the stage and stood with artists I have admired, my heroes, it felt oddly natural to be welcomed with so much authenticity and love by them. I am so grateful to the jury for seeing my hard work,” she said.

Expressing her gratitude for the overwhelming support from her homeland, Anasuya added, “I am amazed at the love pouring in from so many back home, it makes me proud to make everyone proud. I am literally taxi-ing in the plane now on my way home to my family, I just can’t wait to be with them.”

Her historic win marks a significant milestone not only in her career but also for Indian cinema on the global stage. ‘The Shameless’ has garnered attention for its compelling storytelling and Anasuya’s powerful performance, bringing recognition to both the actress and the film.
