India — Priyanka Chopra gave a shout-out to Adarsh Gourav, her co-star in The White Tiger, as he earned a BAFTA nomination in the best leading actor category for his performance in the film. She called him ‘deserving’ and said that she was ‘ecstatic’.

Priyanka, who was also one of the executive producers of The White Tiger, wrote on Twitter, “What a proud moment for Indian talent with 2 BAFTA nominations for an ALL INDIAN STAR CAST!! Ecstatic for you @_GouravAdarsh, you are so deserving of this recognition, and congratulations #RaminBahrani, so well deserved.”

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.”
