The budding filmmaker received tons of appreciation from other prominent women in the industry including Ekta Kapoor, Bhumi Pednekar, Huma Qureshi, and Neeti Mohan among others.

On Tuesday, the Uttarakhand Chief Minister had attended an event for children in the state where he narrated an incident. He mentioned that while he was travelling in a flight, a woman who was wearing ripped denim sat next to him. Rawat said that she had two kids and she ran an NGO. “Maine kaha behan ji kahan jana hai Delhi jana hai, husband kahan hai JNU me professor hain, tum kya karti ho main ek NGO chalati hun. NGO chalati hain, ghutne fatey dikhte hain, samaj ke beech me jaati ho, bachhey saath me hain, kya sanskar dogi? (She was going to Delhi. Her husband was a professor and she said she runs an NGO. I felt like ‘you run an NGO, wear a pair of ripped denim, live in a society, and you’re bringing up two children. What values are you giving to them?’)” he said.
