Karishma Tanna gets nominated for Scoop at Busan Film Festival

Karishma Tanna is the only Indian actress nominated for the prestigious Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) this year for her performance in the streaming series Scoop directed by Hansal Mehta.

The actress has been nominated in the ‘Best Lead Actress’ category and the show has been selected in the ‘Best Asian TV series’.

Sharing her excitement, Tanna said, "I am incredibly happy and overwhelmed by the response Scoop has received. Playing the character of Jagruti Pathak has been an enriching experience, and it will always hold a special place in my heart.”

“I am thankful to director Hansal Mehta for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to be a part of this incredible project."

Scoop is based on Jigna Vora's biographical memoir ‘Behind Bars in Byculla: My Days in Prison’. It follows the real-life story of senior crime reporter Jigna Vora who was accused in the murder of mid-day reporter Jyotirmoy Dey in June 2011.

Tanna takes centre stage, playing the role of Jagruti Pathak, a determined journalist on a quest for justice in a politically ruled nation.
