Kiron Kher wins best actress award at Locarno:

Kiron Kher won the best actress award at the Locarno film festival in Switzerland for her role in a Pakistani director’s film. Kiron won the award for her performance in Khamosh Pani, a German-French-Pakistani co-production directed by Sabeeha Sumar. Khamosh Pani also won the Golden Leopard, the top-most award at the festival. Khamosh Pani was shot in Vah village, 130 km from Peshawar in Pakistan. Kiron played a Sikh woman (Veero), who at the age of 16, is left behind in Pakistan during the riots, but refuses to jump into the well and kill herself. Instead she marries one of her abductors and settles down in Pakistan. Later when the borders between the two countries are unsealed, Veero, now called Ayesha, runs into her brother who comes to Pakistan looking for his lost sister.
