He had lot of stories with human emotions and relationships to share. The day he left us, we decided we needed to make Take Off. I’d like to dedicate all the accolades I have received for the film to Rajesh.”

“I would also like to thank Mahesh (Narayanan), director of the film, for giving me Sameera, who is an embodiment of hope in absolute darkness and the reason I do this job for the sheer need to remind myself what empathy is to connect to other people,” she added.

Talking about the role, she said, “I had to immerse myself in the darkness Sameera was living to play the character. She is the representation of all the women who overcame all the hurdles in the darkness. I’d like dedicate this award to all the nurses of Kerala who emerged out of darkness when in dilemma.”
