Meanwhile, Indian actor Adarsh Gourav, who has been nominated in the Best Actor category for his performance in Netflix’s The White Tiger, recently opened up about the same and told PTI in an interview, “It really depends on the director you are working with and in Ramin’s case, he did not want us to see the playback so everything that happened has been surprising and overwhelming for me. The BAFTA nomination is really overwhelming. It feels like I’m reading a chapter from a book.”

The White Tiger is Adarsh Gourav’s first leading role in a feature film. It also stars Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Rajkummar Rao in pivotal roles.
