Oscar winner Guneet Monga opens up about speech snub
Academy Award winner Guneet Monga wasn't given the chance to speak on the stage when The Elephant Whisperers won the Oscar for Best Documentary Short. Director Karitiki Gonsalves delivered her speech and as Monga started to speak, she was played off the stage. Now the producer has opened up about the snub. The award ceremony has had many infamous snubs before, too.
'I will make sure I'm heard': Monga
Monga said that she was shocked when she could not deliver her speech. She stated, "I just wanted to say it's India's first Oscar in Indian production, which is such a huge thing." "My heart started racing as I couldn't have come so far and not be heard. I'll go back there and I will make sure I'm heard."
