“I feel extremely proud to have been an executive producer on this movie! Let’s get it!! #TheWhiteTiger @_GouravAdarsh @RajkummarRao #RaminBahrani @mukuldeora @netflix,” she added.

Director Ramin Bahrani also received a BAFTA nomination in the adapted screenplay category.

In an interview with PTI shortly after the nominations were announced, Adarsh said, “This is unbelievable. It is surreal… I was at the gym. I just found out about the nomination.” He added, “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.”
