Bringing more cheer, Aneena, a Class X student of Rajagiri Higher Secondary School, Kalamassery, was also announced the best actress in the HS category. “She is appearing for the first time in the district youth festival, and bagging the first prize for the best actress is very surprising. Seeing her performing on stage was very touching,” said Molly.

Aneena, could not hide her joy on hearing she was declared best actress. “It is the first time I am performing for the district youth festival. I never thought that I would be announced the best actress. It is indeed a very memorable moment in life,” she said. 

Directed by Mohan Krishnan, the prize-winning play ‘Vashi’ was inspired by the recent Kerala floods.
