Shabana to head for Florence for a retrospective
That isn't all. Cristina Scaletti, Tuscany's regional councillor of culture, will give Shabana the Pegasus of the Region Tuscany Award on the opening day.
Said Shabana: "I'm honoured and humbled and grateful to the writers and directors who cast me in challenging roles. The Pegasus honour is big because when a state recognises you, it's very heartening."
Encomiums and Shabana are bum chums. In her career of 41 years she has collected awards - both National and popular - by the dozen and has made her presence felt at various film festivals.
Shabana has had many retrospective, such as the one at the New York Film Festival where she was the first actor ever to be thus honoured as till then they did retros only of directors.
Retrospective of her films were also held at Cinematheque in Paris, at the British Film Institute London, Avignon, and Winnipeg, Toronto etc. in Canada.
Last year the River To River festival held a retrospective of Amitabh Bachchan's films.
