“For being a true artist in her own right for whom film repair is as much of an art as it was for the creators whose vision she painstakingly brings back to life; for her love for celluloid and her single-minded dedication to its preservation; for being an inspiring teacher generously sharing her precious expertise and skills that has played a crucial role in creating a movement to save film in our country and the subcontinent.”
