Shabana Azmi is still happy with the response her latest effort in Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola is receiving.

She plays a tough and crooked politician in Vishal Bhardwaj's just-released film — a role that has critics raving. "I have got a lot of compliments and I am thankful to Vishal Bhardwaj for giving me such a wonderful role," the actress said here on the sidelines of a 19th Annual Colours Screen Awards ceremony. Shabana, known today more as an activist with a conscience, has essayed roles in such immortals of parallel cinema as Shyam Benegal's directorial debut Ankur, followed by Arth, Khandar, Godmother, Satyajit Ray's Shatranj Ke Khiladi and the evergreen Mandi. She has to her name a record five National Awards for Best Actress.
