Filmmaker Gitanjali Rao‘s animated feature “Bombay Rose” won two prestigious awards at the 21st Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival With Star.

Nominated in the prestigious ‘India Gold’ section, Bombay Rose won the ‘India Gold Silver Gateway Award’and the Manish Acharya Award for New Voices in Indian Cinema’. The awards were announced at the festival’s closing ceremony on Thursday.

Bombay Rose revolves around a flower seller who has to choose between protecting her family and allowing herself to fall in love.
