It was a moment of success and pride for Priyanka Chopra when her Sikkimese production Pahuna was the limelight at the Toronto International Film Festival. Accompanied by her mother Mrs Madhu Chopra and director of the film Paakhi A Tyrewala, she expressed her happiness on the social media:
Never be ok with hearing the word no…because there will always be someone who will say "yes." I'm very proud of my first time "female" director @paakhi for having the courage to not give up, when people didn't believe this film could be made. Bravo for wanting to tell a beautiful story that may not be what people consider mainstream… but today had a world premiere on an international platform at @tiff_net, with an applause that resonated for a very long time. Tonight an audience watched this film for the first time outside of our offices at @purplepebblepictures, and told us how proud they were that a story like this was told. Thank u @madhuchopra for your keen eye. Thank you @cameronpbailey for the opportunity to share this small film and a big message with a world audience…one about children's rights, the refugee crisis, religious conversion and the affect of adult decisions on kids from the perspective of our protagonists, who are 2 young kids from a small village in Sikkim. My heart swells at the thought of people standing up and applauding our effort. This is the reason I wanted to be a filmmaker. Major feels. 🌈❤️❤️🙏🏼🙌🏼😍
Piggy Chops was all praise for the director, for which she said:
