Sir was titled the World Cinema (Indie) Audience Favorite (Gold).

“The audience response at the festival left me speechless. I am so grateful for their enthusiasm and support… I really believe that audiences can define the fate of a film,” says an ecstatic Rohena, adding, “I keep saying that I made the film for India, so seeing that it is connecting to audiences around the world is really moving. But still, I just can’t wait for the Indian premiere and to talk to the first Indian audiences to see how they feel”
