Apart from the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil star, director Zoya Akhtar and Dhadak star Janhvi Kapoor, among others, were also honoured at the event.

Speaking about the award named after veteran Hollywood actor Meryl Streep, WIFT India founding president Petrina D’Rozario said, “Whether it is her extraordinary body of work or her charitable endeavors, Ms. Streep is an inspiration for all.”

“Our aim here is to encourage others to think outside the norm of gender-based hiring practices and give females of all nationalities an equal chance to vie in fields dominated by men,” she elaborated.

WIFT India is part of WIFT International, a network which promotes professional development and achievement for women in the film industry, video, and other screen-based media.
