The movie, which has been widely lauded at film festival, features Tillotama with Vivek Gomber and Geetanjali Kulkarni. Directed by Rohena Gera, it tells a love story of a servant and the son of her upper-class employer.
"For us to win best film and best actress is completely the cherry atop a very groovy cake. I am very grateful to the jury and the festival," Tillotama told IANS.
'Sir' is yet to release in India, but it may happen soon.
"The director is really fighting for a proper release of the film in India. And I do believe that she is going to make it happen," said the actress, who had earlier won the Best Actress honour at the Brussels International Film Festival in January this year.
