Honoured to be nominated for the International @iemmys amongst such talented artists. I loved playing Dr. Bhabha. Rocket Boys is deeply etched in my mind and heart. @pannuabhay @nikkhiladvani Big love to everyone who helped create the show."Earlier it was announced that Producer Ektaa R Kapoor will be felicitated with the Directorate Award at the upcoming International Emmy Awards ceremony.
