Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy Honoured With The Best Asian Film Of The Year  At BIFAN
On Sunday, filmmaker Zoya Akhtar said that she is grateful to Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival for recognising her latest directorial Gully Boy as the Best Asian Film for the year. The film, starring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt, was honoured with the NETPAC award. NETPAC Jury Committee, comprised of NETPAC members and film professionals, select the best Asian Film from World Fantastic Blue section, which features newer genres and varied stories of comedy, fantasy and drama.

Said Zoya in a statement to PTI, "When we make films we hope as many people see them. We hope the story travels far and wide because in doing so it only makes the world smaller. We see the differences. We experience cultures unlike ours and understanding these differences bring us closer. We see similarities, we see the common ground of humanity and we recognise our own spirit in another which also brings us closer. To have Gully Boy recognised by BIFAN and by NETPAC is such a tremendous honour. One me and my crew will always be grateful for.”
